Glad to here it! Over here it was Reformation Day, but a pretty normal day apart from the name.

But my mom told me they had kids trick or treating in the little town their living in. So Halloween is getting more of a thing in some places at least. :)

That's awesome! I know that in recent years Halloween got some traction in places like France. I don't know if it's still popular currently. I should do a search on that. :)

Well, in Germany at the moment it's more like an extension of the carnival industry to be honest. But in cities you'll have big Halloween parties (some taking the horror themes very seriously, some just being parties with costumes) and apparently in some areas we get trick-or-treating now.

And with kids growing up with it (not only from TV like my generation), Halloween might gradually become a tradition. It's still not wide spread, beyond the party crowd here.

Sounds like it's got a foothold, though! Sometimes new traditions take awhile, but even if it stayed as is, sounds like a lot of people are having fun! :)

I would say kids would love to adopt the trick-or-treat part. Dressing up in costumes and getting free candy? What's not to love? ;)

This sounds pretty much like carnival around here to me. :D But if I would have had the opportunity for dressing up and candy twice a year when I was a kid, I would have taken it in a heart beat!

Yeah, Halloween has been around for a little over a decade here as actual felt presence and people are having fun, so I do think it's going to establish its own traditions here soon.

Depending on where they are in Germany kids will be very busy from end of October right into December with all the local kid related festivals we have during November/December.

Kid festivals? What do they do besides dress up and get candy? ;)

It depends a bit on where you are locally what all the festivals at this time of year will be. But for example it's only a few days to St. Martin's Day, which is widely celebrated, so about now kids will be making their own lanterns in school and kindergarten and on the evening of the day kids and parents will do a procession with the kids carrying their lanterns and singing traditional songs and usually an adult dresses up as the saint and accompanies or leads the procession on horseback. (Usually they replay the famous story of the saint sharing his coat with a beggar at some point.) In some places there are bonfire festivals, too.

We did get traditional pastries on that day, but what you'll get varies throughout Germany.
