Apparently we’re pretty hardcore when it comes to Halloween. No surprise there…
The nation Retail Federation says we’re going to spend about $8.4 BILLION on Halloween this year, which is an all-time high. The most we spent in previous years was back in 2012 when we spent $8 Billion.
The $8.4 billion averages out to about $83 per person. Here’s what we’ll be spending our money on:
1. 94% of people will buy candy.
2. 70% will buy decorations.
3. 67% will buy costumes for themselves, their kids, or their pets.
4. And 35% will buy Halloween greeting cards.
And surprisingly this number isn’t bigger: One in three of us have started planning our costume already. Obviously!
