Welcome to our $9 billion party promising to lift us from the weariness of hurricanes and nuclear threats and a constipated Congress and wildfires. That’s how much the National Retail Federation projects we’ll dish out for Halloween this year, a record high. We’ll spend $3.4 billion for costumes; $2.7 billion for candy; $2.7 billion for decorations; and $0.4 billion for cards.

Personally, I know that any amount of party will not take away our blues. It is just ridiculous to spend that huge amount for a party just to feel good about yourself. I know people are entitled to spend their money where they want to, but that is just wasting money. Throwing a party is not about how much you spent, but about the people you are with. It is about bonding with the people that you would like to cherish in your life forever.
