A recent survey shows that spending for Halloween is expected to reach $9 billion this year. Celebrants are planning to spend an average of $86.79, up from last year’s $86.13, with more than 175 million Americans planning to partake in Halloween festivities.
According to Matthew Shaw of the National Retail Federation, “The economy is good and consumer confidence is high, so families are ready to spend on Halloween this year.”
Among the many festivities? Handing out candy, decorating your home, dressing up the family pet, attending or throwing a party and of course, trick-or-treating.
