According to the US Census Department, over 36 million American children (ages 5 to 13) will trick or treat door to door on Halloween night.
Many people in the United States carve pumpkins to light up on Halloween. Chances are that you will be getting a pumpkin grown in Illinois unless you purchase one grown at a local farmer because Illinois leads in US pumpkin production by a huge margin. Consumers will use up over 1 billion pounds of pumpkin as jack o' lanterns, in pies or other ways just this year alone.
The nearly 2500 costume stores and rental shops across the US make dressing up for Halloween easy in fun. Kids and adults alike frequent these Halloween gift and costume shops to make this holiday one of the most popular in the United States.
