If you’re beginning your holiday planning schedule for Thanksgiving (US), Christmas and New Years, that’s great news. But you may be leaving some dollars behind. In this rough economy, people need an excuse to take a break. And according to the latest National Retail Federation survey, a record 170 million people plan to celebrate Halloween this year. The average person will spend $79.82 on decorations, costumes and candy, up from $72.31 last year, with total Halloween spending expected to reach $8.0 billion.
Let’s plan those holiday sales and craft some freaky emails… it’s time to wake the dead!
