The National Retail Federation shares that $10.14 billion dollars will be spent on Halloween this year, with a large chunk of it going toward costumes.
65% of Americans plan to participate in Halloween this year compared to the 58% in 2020.
Before the pandemic, 68% planned to participate in 2019.
People are likely to participate more because they missed out last year, and retailers have started selling Halloween items earlier.
8,000 people were surveyed with 46% planning to dress up and spend $3.32 billion dollars on costumes.
Here are the top costumes for kids, adults, and pets:
- Avengers character
- Superman/The Joker
