Halloween is big business

It is estimated that Americans spend roughly $2 billion in Halloween candy each year or, which is larger than the other major holidays, Christmas, Easter and Valentines Day combined.

Last year alone, it is estimated that Americans consumed close to 24.3-lbs of candy per capita and that each person will spend at least $20 in candy related purchases this year.

Halloween costumes are also a big money-maker this time of the year with researchers estimateing that over $1.75 billion is spent transforming oneself or a child into some other creature, being or person.
