The French have their own unique, stylish ways of celebrating Halloween traditions. Here are some Halloween photos we found in the blogosphere from different regions of France.

Every year on Halloween, the merchants of Old Town Tustin pass out candy to trick-or-treaters after school hours, before it gets dark. This year there were about 400 kids and parents walking around. Top costumes included multiple Marios and a Luigi (who knew they were popular again?), a family of nerds, Pebbles & Bam-Bam, princesses, and lions. In between clusters of kids, we snapped some photos. Scroll down to see all of them.
