Well, the day is here: it’s Halloween. Whether you plan on spending today out Trick-or-Treating with your kids (trying to remember which Princess Elsa is yours), or out at a party with friends (trying to remember how to get home), or even inside with the lights out and the curtains drawn (trying to figure out the best way to ignore the people constantly ringing your doorbell), the fact is you’re part of this special day in America. Here are a few stats about just how much money will be spent on the holiday — trust us, it’s scary stuff.
