Starting this week in Paris, you’ll see something that’s fairly new to Parisians: Halloween! That’s right, the City of Light has embraced this most American of holidays, but of course they do it in their inimitable way.

You won’t see the mountains of bite-sized candy in the supermarkets, and the Trick-or-Treat thing is still a bit rocky as a concept. But you will see plenty of jack-o-lanterns, and towards the weekend and on Halloween itself you will see discreet costumes on adults (as in the photo above).

If you’re hell-bent on celebrating Halloween in Paris, then head to the Irish/English/American pubs, where they tend to do it up right. The American Embassy will probably have a to-do. And for an all-out Halloween extravaganza, head to Disneyland Paris, where the holiday is in full force.
