Halloween Dollars

A new survey shows that 73% of Americans celebrate “Halloween” and that the average consumer will spend $40 on candy and decorations. The VISA survey found that parents with children under 18 will spend $54 on candy and decorations while those without children under 18 will spend $32. Of mention, younger people ($44) say they spend more than those 55 and over ($31). Those who live in rural areas ($49) spend $10 more on average than people living in urban areas ($39) and $13 more than suburbanites ($36). To help consumers budget for holidays or other financial events, VISA offers parents, teachers and consumers of all ages free access to a financial education program called “Practical Money Skills for Life.” For more information visit: “”:
