Those Germans and their lesser known customs
On Halloween, the night of the October 31, ghosts and ghouls roam the streets of Germany. This custom is relatively new here: In 1991, Carnival was cancelled because of the Gulf War, so costume rental businesses and pubs looked for an alternative. It was opportune then that the custom of celebrating Halloween in this manner was already migrating from the US to Europe.
