Record spending on Halloween
Americans are expected to spend a record $10 billion on Halloween this year.
That's according to the National Retail Federation.
The NRF says people will spend $2 billion more this year than in 2020 on candy, decorations and costumes for adults, kids and pets - but most of the spending will go to costumes.
The organization says it is the most consumers have spent on costumes since 2017.
On average, consumers are expected to fork over a little more than $102 on Halloween-related items.
