Germans do not typically celebrate Halloween. This was our third Halloween and out of three years we have only had one trick-or-treater, I think they were Americans who lived in our neighborhood. Last year we didn't buy a costume for our son but we decided to get him one this year. We didn't take him trick-or-treating but I did take him to a little Halloween party. He was a cute dinosaur.
We also took our son to a pumpkin farm. While Germans do not tend to carve pumpkins they do have several farms where you can buy them. The man who owned the farm talked us into buying a baking pumpkin to eat. I cooked it the other night and it was really good. Our boy enjoyed chasing the farm dog and looking at the horses. He also loved picking up small pumpkins.
So how did we spend our Halloween? We blessed with incredible weather so we went to the Heidelberg Castle. Our "prince" pretended to be ruler for the day as he ran around the castle grounds having a great time.
