Halloween provides 'boo-ming' sales
"If beginning to look a lot like ..." Halloween! Take a drive through your community - any community in Raystown Country - and you find displays, from simple leaf-filled ghosts and pumpkins to elaborate, illuminated, scary scenes. Halloween, you see, is no longer just for the kids. The baby-boomers of the '90s have found a new holiday to embrace. And, each year, more and more people are getting into the act. Nowadays, instead of taking or sending their costumed children out for a couple hours of "trick or treating" on Halloween night, the adults themselves are investing their time and lots of money creating ornate outdoor and/or indoor displays, buying or renting costumes and holding their own festive Halloween parties.
Nationally, Halloween, has become the number two holiday - behind Christmas - for home decorating and now ranks number one among holiday candy sales, surpassing Valentine's Day. And it has leapfrogged over other holidays into No. 3 in party-themed merchandise, trailing only Super Bowl Sunday and New Year's Eve. All of this is bringing smiles to the faces of retailers as they hear the whiz of the cash registers. Halloween, according to the latest figures, has become a $2.4-biIlion national holiday season.
