Devils Snag Your Money This Halloween

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – This year, Halloween is in the Devil’s hands – or at least the Devil’s wallet.

The National Retail Federation has just conducted its 2007 Halloween Consumer Intentions and Actions survey, and it looks like the costumes Halloween lovers will be spending most of their money on are devil costumes.

Turns out, 12 percent of folks will be ponying up the cash to don some red horns and a Devil’s pitchfork.

Other costly costume cues include...

  • 9.2 percent of people will spend their cash on a classic pumpkin costume, while 4.5 percent dress up in witch garb.

  • Pretty princess costumes are still the first choice for little girls, with 10.7 percent wanting a princess Halloween costume.

  • 4.8 percent of kids want to dress up as Spider- Man, closely followed by 4.7 percent who want to wear a pirate’s costume.

  • Finally, 60 percent of consumers plan to celebrate Halloween this year, including 33 percent of adults who plan to dress up.
