Dressing Up for Halloween? Yeah, So Are We!


Some data can be found in a survey by Statista. More amazing data points are offered by the National Retail Federation.

With more than 179 million Americans planning to partake in Halloween festivities, up from 171 million last year, spending is slated to reach a record high in survey history. This year, consumers are expected to spend $9.1 billion, up from $8.4 billion in 2016.

Bonus stat: Ten percent of people dress up their pet!

But when it comes to everyday life, Statista reports that Americans' fears are a lot more mundane and possibly scarier than ghosts and goblins.
