Halloween in Lausanne

Hello, good people of English Forum!

So a great holiday and an excuse to parade around in a costume are coming soon (31st of October) and I was wondering if there would be some English-speaking people interested in a gathering of sorts, to honor that great tradition, situated in Lausanne or willing to come by? Also, from what I've learned, MAD club organizes a great Halloween party on Nov 3rd, so it would be marvelous if there were some interested parties.

I'm not that experienced with this forum's rules, so I hope it's okay that I started a discussion, rather than a specific event proposition.

Cheerio!

Oh that sounds great! I'm pretty sure I'll turn up with a friend of mine at some point.
How can you tell the group apart, if not by eavesdropping on people to see if somebody speaks English?

Thank you for sharing!

Re: Halloween in Lausanne

Hi, the only way I ever find anyone is by looking to see if I recognise anyone on the guest list or... eavesdropping as you suggest!

I'm sure we will be pretty easy to spot wearing our Halloween costumes. I'll be going as a skeleton.

Spoooky!

I think it most likely that anyone going out in fancy dress will be English-speaking. Well, American-speaking, more accurately.

One of those things that strikes me as odd - don't Americans realise that the rest of the world doesn't share their ideas of dressing up and going out partying on Halloween?

Re: Halloween in Lausanne

Heh, I'm not the most objective person to speak here, as I'll take whatever excuse I can get to walk around in costume and/or something ridiculous. It's a fun tradition anyways.

Well, hope to see you guys in one of the places! I'll be looking around, eavesdropping and parading as a comic book Wonder Woman!
