The National Retail Federation has been conducting an annual Halloween survey since 2003. The last time we reported on it was in 2015 with our Halloween Fun Facts blog.
Each year they project how Americans will celebrate this Spooktacular holiday, the third most popular holiday in the country.
Spending for Halloween in 2017 is projected to reach a record high of $9.1 billion, this is up from $8.4 billion in 2016 and $6.9 billion in 2015.
Here are a few more interesting highlights from their 2017 survey.
