Halloween

Happy Halloween à tous et toutes !!

In the spirit of the holiday I’m sharing this silly video with you all. If you’ve never heard of this show, Têtes à Claques, it was created by les québécois and they’re essentially making fun of their French Canadian French. It’s obviously very exaggerated, which makes it funny. I discovered this show during my last year at university in a class called Les Registres du Français, where a classmate did a presentation on this show and the French Canadian register. (My presentation was on an Albert Camus speech, which wasn’t as entertaining.)

Without further ado, here is the video. I hope you enjoy! It has French subtitles so you can get what is being said.

Do you celebrate Halloween where you’re from? If you do, what are your traditions?

Enjoy your evening and be safe!

A bientôt !!
