Although I've never been a big fan of Halloween (even as a kid), my kids always loved it. However, when they were growing up it was more low-key - that was about the time the first flimsy store-bought costumes appeared. I think that Halloween is one of those holidays that has been fully marketed into existence. By adding more and more decorations and getting them out earlier each year, businesses in this country have created a demand for something that used to make barely a blip on the holiday radar!


Hi Cheryle,

Thanks for your comment. I agree that corporations have figured out how to create demand for Halloween.

It was good to read that Americans only spend $56 on Halloween. However, if that's person, that's quite a bit.

Thanks for stopping by. Please visit The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide again.
