    That's ridiculous! Show me the American who can afford a 9.6 billion dollar Halloween costume!

    I almost always make my costume and buy it at the thrift store. I anticipate spending under $20 this year. My wig was around $11, that's the expensive part.

    I went to my husband's place (ours now) on Halloween for the first time. Not a single kid came to the door...in the past 5 years, not 'a one. We live in a cul-de-sac and dead end and I just don't think they bother. We find it to be a great day to go out to dinner too...plus, it's our dating anniversary. We don't really celebrate that now, but I like any excuse to go out.
