Austrians mainly collect theme parties and decorate their own four walls, for which they spend an average of 25 euros per head.

Halloween – a festival for boys
This year, sweets topped the shopping list (34%). But pumpkins (20%), snacks (19%), creepy decorations (17%), costumes (12%) and alcoholic beverages (11%) are among the most popular Halloween products.
Especially families with children and customers: People under the age of 35 especially like to invest in horror festivals. Consumers over the age of 60 can do little with this practice, which actually came from Catholic Ireland, which was widely circulated by Irish immigrants in the USA.
In general, customs such as Halloween give the trade the character of an event. They give extra emotions, depending on the retail format, and more traffic on the shopping streets. Trading companies can try to use marketing machinery for honest offers and turn young bargain hunters into regular customers.
