Halloween was a foreign concept in Germany in the mid-1990s. Now, though, it generates more cash than any other holiday in Germany but for Christmas and Easter.

Halloween-related products fly off the shelves this time of year, including these white chocolate delights. The industry is worth €160 million a year.

Some 4,600 tons of pumpkins were sold in Germany in 2007. The holiday was introduced to Germany by a marketing guru working for the German toy industry.

Especially children have fallen in love with the holiday, which was imported from the United States, which imported its predecessor -- All Hallow's Eve -- from Ireland.

The Evangelical Church in Germany is not amused by the success of Halloween in Germany. After all, it falls on Reformation Day.
