Do you know the origins of Halloween?

The Rommelbootzennaat, stronger than Halloween in Moselle!

The Moselle region is full of traditions... and certainly more stories of beasts and witches of all kinds.

In fact, if we go back a few centuries, we've found a legend that's sure to please!

Once upon a time...October 31st marked the end of the bright season and the beginning of the cold one. During the night of All Saints' Day, the door between the world of the living and the one of the dead remained open.

To protect themselves from wandering souls lurking around their homes, Moselle inhabitants lit candles. They then placed them in hollowed-out beet, on which they drew terrifying faces!

This particular night had a name: the Rommelbootzennaat, or "Night of the grimacing beet". So Moselle has nothing to envy to Halloween, which it has been celebrating in its own way for centuries!
