This crazy economy will NOT stop Americans from splurging on their Sexy Nurse costumes or their fun size Snickers

Phew!  Halloween will not only survive this little turbulent economy of ours, but according to a recent survey conducted by the National Retail Federation  it appears as though Halloween is even more popular than last year:

“Nearly two-thirds (64.5%) of Americans plan to celebrate Halloween this year and will spend an average of $66.54, according to the National Retail Federation’s Halloween Consumer Intentions and Actions Survey, conducted by BIGresearch.

These increases will drive 2008 Halloween spending to an estimated $5.8 billion, up from $5.07 billion last year, when 58.7% of consumers said they planned to celebrate Halloween and would spend $64.82 each, according to the survey.”

    Although we might see a move back towards cheaper cotton nurse outfits rather than the expensive PVC in the above photo. :)
