Frightfully French - Tips For A French-Inspired Halloween
Mummy's Alive! This Halloween (or 'A lo ween' - as the French say), we are bringing you tons of useful tips to create a French-inspired Halloween celebration. It is so exciting to dress up and enjoy the U.S. traditions during Halloween because, in France, 'A lo ween' is not a very big holiday.

On these days, there is no dressing up or watching horror films, so we're taking the American traditions and putting our French spin on them.
