A subdued Halloween

Halloween in France is clearly not the event it’s become in North America. So far, at almost 7:20 p.m., we have had a grand total of three (3) (trois) trick-or-treaters. We haven’t spottted any jack-o-lanterns in the village, and in fact couldn’t actually find any pumpkins for sale. So our Halloween decorations consist of, well, nothing actually.

However, in the neighbouring town of Gourdon yesterday, we did find evidence that someone gets it. Placed on many of the tables at an outdoor café were jack-o-lanterns, including some fairly decent ones. Well, it’s a start.

    Peut-être parce qu’un potiron est une gourde ?
