Every year it seems a bit more pervasive, and a bit closer to what I deem fit to call “real Halloween.”
Skeletons and skulls? Check. Castles and headstones? Germany’s got that without even trying. Throw in a little spooky lightning for good measure.
But there are a couple bonus items here Germany has thoughtfully brought to the table. At first I thought it was Jorge from Germany’s Next Top Model, but since there are no heels, it must be a garden-variety Man-Witch. Bummer, because I am sure Jorge would have plenty of advice for marching down the runway in magenta crepe-paper skirts and matching wigs.
And check out this wicked rat! For just 24,95€ he can scare off (or more probably, consume with demonic rage) those pesky neighbor kids. This is not a aspect of the Halloween scene, but one that I dig.
