Stop for just a second and guess how much people in America spend collectively every year on Halloween.

Would you guess $5 billion dollars? If so, you're way under. Try $9 billion. A third of that is on costumes, with $2.7 billion spent on decorations and $2.6 billion on candy.

These numbers are from the National Retail Federation.
