Halloween goes back to the customs and traditions of the Celts , who lived between Ireland and Northern France about 2000 years ago. They were pagans who did not believe in god.

They lit bonfires to scare them away and they tried to confuse these demons by wearing the same clothes that they did.

My mother likes French food, so we have a French style breakfast with bread, croissants and lots of different cheeses.
