My son and I are american and my husband is german, we live in southern Germany and Halloween is just now becoming popular. We have to make or import (very expensive and not practical) all our decorations. Last year my son was in tears about Halloween and I was pretty close myself. Thank goodness we have fasching, that's as close as we get here. Although I deal with bats, blood and pus, and skulls on a daily basis we still really miss Halloween. We are really enjoying the pictures and recipes. This site makes our Halloween much more bearable.
