Record spending on Halloween

Halloween spending is basically recession-proof: about $7 BILLION dollars this year, up every year since 2008 (when the current recession began).  That's about $2 billion on costumes, $2 billion on candy, and something approaching $2 billion on decorations.  Here's the kicker: that includes more than $300 MILLION on PET costumes!

"According to the annual National Retail Federation Halloween spending survey, some 161 million people will celebrate Halloween – the biggest number in the 10 years the NRF has conducted the survey."
