When I was living in the USA, I fully enjoyed celebrating Halloween and I still do.
I believe traditions are a good thing to maintain as they keep us together and it is never a bad thing to celebrate holidays like Dias de los Muertos or Halloween, which help ritualize our fears of death.
Also, most of the kids I know love to feel a safe moderate level of fear.
Yes, sometimes being scared can be fun !
Here is our selection of fun and spooky books for this coming Halloween and a free Halloween coloring page to download, just created for you ! Yay !
Quand je vivais aux États-Unis, j’aimais énormément célébrer Halloween; c’est toujours le cas aujourd’hui.
Je trouve qu’il y a du bon dans les traditions, elles nous rassemblent et ce n’est jamais une mauvaise chose de célébrer des fêtes comme Dias de los Muertos ou Halloween, qui aident à ritualiser nos peurs de la mort.
Et puis, la plupart des enfants que je connais aiment frissonner en toute sécurité.
Oui parfois, avoir peur peut être amusant !
Voici notre sélection de livres pour Halloween, suivi d’un coloriage gratuit spécial Halloween, créé rien que pour vous et à télécharger ! Youpi !
