Halloween isn’t exactly celebrated here in Switzerland, but tonight we’re going to carve our pumpkin, and eat some candy while watching my favorite movie, The Nightmare Before Christmas. Our house is decorated for the holiday, but we likely won’t see any trick-or-treaters. Though, I have seen a few Halloween decoration items for sale in some of the stores.

The Swiss celebrate a similar holiday called Fastnacht in February on the same day that Americans celebrate Mardi Gras/Shrove Tuesday/etc. There’s a huge costumed parade and all sorts of goings on.
