Per WNEP in Scranton, PA:

Shoppers are expected to spend more than ever on Halloween this year, according to the National Retail Federation. Shoppers are expected to spend around $77 dollars each this year on candy, costumes, and decorations. While the National Retail Federation reports shopping hasn’t increased on all the other holidays like Christmas or Valentine’s Day, it has for Halloween: 62 percent more since 2005.

Overall Halloween consumer spending on candy, costumes, and decorations will hit $7.5 Billion. Candy alone will reach $2.5 Billion in sales according to the National Confectioners Association.
