$360 Million Spent on Greeting Cards
Halloween is a secular holiday combining vestiges of traditional harvest festival celebrations with customs more specific to the occasion such as costume wearing, trick-or-treating, pranksterism, and decorative imagery based on the changing of the seasons, death, and the supernatural.
Originally having started as a Catholic vigil observed on the eve of All Saints Day, November 1, in the early Middle Ages, this holiday has greatly transformed especially in the recent 30-40 years, having become a fun day, filled with carved pumpkins, Jack-o'-lanterns to “frighten evil spirits”, spiderwebs, witches, ghosts, magic, mystical beliefs, good food and lots of candy. Halloween parties are nowadays held everywhere - from business offices, schools, colleges & universities, nightclubs, restaurants and homes to the White House with the President and The First Lady also dressing up and giving away sweets to the invited kids.
With the $360 million - the total amount expected to be spent on greeting cards only (NRF) - you can easily imagine how popular and loved this holiday is all around the country.
