Forget Bonfire Night and Easter, we rate Halloween the top family occasion next to the festive season, and we're set to spend more than £100 each on parties!
A survey of 2,000 parents by Woolworths.co.uk found the average family spends £73 on food and decorations for parties throughout the year. But for Halloween we're averaging another £42 on costumes and trick or treat essentials.
More than one in three of us will be throwing a Halloween party this year, and the total amount spent on celebrations across Britain is now £280 million!
If you're heading out to trick or treat with your children this year, expect it to be busy, as two-thirds of children are expected to be out and about on Halloween evening, with a potential 24,900,000 doors being knocked on.
Are you celebrating Halloween in your household? We have everything (and we mean everything) to help you out. From how to carve a pumpkin to the best treats to serve and costumes to wear, find it all in our dedicated section.
