Not Just For Kids!

Halloween, which is just around the corner, used to be a holiday primarily for the kids — costumes, trick or treating, and lots of candy. However, lately, adults are becoming the dominant consumers for this holiday — grownup parties and events, home decor, and costumes (adults, children, and pets).

According to the National Retail Federation, here were the top spending categories:

  • Candy – $2.1 billion
  • Home Decor – $1.9 billion
  • Adult Costumes – $1.2 billion
  • Child Costumes – $950 million
  • Pet Costumes – $350 million

So, Happy Halloween (next week) one and all.  Party on, Wayne!
