Are the little people from Halloween , sorcerers, gnomes, hunchback men so vicious as that ? Do they like to scratch the barks of the trees?

Yes, you see- Halloween has never been a tradition over here. It was imported by the industry in the 90s. Soon after that people who unluckily did not spontaneously hand out candy (abundantly!) when asked to so on the spot were "treated" - i.e. foul eggs smashed onto their doors and windows. As a result the poor & innocent trees of our community had to be protected - having been treated the way you mentioned! :-)

I would never believe that young German children could behave that way! Now, there is here a service of recuperation (by volunteers) of candies to save the children extra trips to the local dentists...I don't know if the candies are for resale or redistributed to low income (abroad and at home) kids who won't go see the dentists anyhow! Here, they don't touch the trees, otherwise they will have the mighty Associaton of Owners, the Tree Protection Act, the police and what not coming down on them!!! But they cover your yard, trees, bushes with rolls of toilet paper (white, the cheapest). Our house was targeted at least 2 times....If you care to know why, I can tell you.

Remember the ents in Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" - where these mighty beings took revenge!
