This year, the National Retail Foundation (NRF) is predicting that a record 170 million people will celebrate Halloween — 71.5 percent of Americans will be donning costumes or handing out candy. Last year, that number was 68.6 percent.
The NRF is also expecting spending to reach around $8 billion with the average person spending nearly $80 — up from $72 last year — on decorations, costumes and candy.
