At the Price Gun Store, we are always concerned with the price and cost of everyday items. We took our interest a little bit further to explore the cost of big name holidays in the United States and how much the average American is willing to spend to celebrate it. Halloween has always been a time to scare, to trick and to treat. But it seems Americans have been trick or treating themselves so much that it’s almost scary. Halloween has turned into one of the priciest holidays in the United States. Between costumes, candy and pumpkins the average American is spending anywhere between $70 and $80 each Halloween; contributing to a total average US expenditure of $7.2 billion dollars annually since 2011. Luckily due to heavier rains in the Midwest promoting pumpkin patches to flourish and their cost to lower, this year’s total price tag for Halloween 2013 is predicted to come in at roughly $6.9 billion spent, compared to last year’s $8 billion spent. But no matter which way you carve it, spending billions each year on candy, costumes and pumpkins is what we call a scary statistic. To see how the typical American spends their Halloween fund, check out our Cost of Halloween in the United States infographic.
