The American tradition of Halloween, which sees children dressing up and gobbling sugarcoated treats, is rapidly becoming a popular night across the globe.
Over 157 million Americans plan on celebrating this weekend, with total domestic spending on Halloween expected to reach $6.9 billion, or $74.34 per person, according to the National Retail Federation's recent survey. Elsewhere, figures are smaller, but growing nevertheless.
In the U.K., sales are expected to reach £283 million ($436.5 million) in 2015, up from £275 million a year before, market research firm Mintel predicts. Other companies like Tesco suspect it will be nearer to £400 million.
