Halloween is a very fun and spooky season that comes around in late October. It basically sets the mark for the start of winter, and the Christmas vibes start from there. The home décor preparations, costumes, and candies make the Halloween season much more fun.
Due to this reason, there are a lot of Halloween sales on different products so that people can buy them. The Halloween related stuff sales fluctuate every time because there is an uncertain number of people who decide not to celebrate this spooky event. Last year, the Halloween sales numbers were in a bit of disregard as there were a lot of ups and downs in the market. There were about three million fewer people who celebrated Halloween, which means no candies, costumes, or decorations.
The Halloween sales numbers last year were impressive as there were ups as well as a few downs. The candy sales held their own, and there was no change in sales compared to the previous year. 95% of the people bought candies for the big day as it is the most popular item in this season. The spooky home décor saw an increase in sales, indicating that more people are inclined to put haunted attractions in their homes for the spooky vibes. Costumes, on the other hand, saw a decline in the sales as well as greeting cards. Fewer celebrants wanted to go trick-or-treating compared to last year.
