Happy Halloween!

posted on 10th of september, 2013

The back to school supplies are emptying out of the local super stores, and the shelves are starting to get filled with the first round of Halloween and Thanksgiving products. Time to pull out the Halloween stock images!

Skulls, witches, pumpkins, candy corn, tricks, treats and especially black and orange!

Ed, this is all very interesting. Thanks! Christmas season starts early in the UK too - this very morning in the supermarket I saw the first chocolate advent calendars! They already have mince pies too.

These days Thanksgiving gets squeeze out by the Christmas push that gets earlier and earlier. Thanksgiving used to be a four day extended weekend - now its about two hours before the "Early Bird - Black Friday Sales" start. Retailers can't clear the Halloween stuff out fast enough to make way for Christmas.

How very interesting! Thanksgiving is not even in the first five! Thanks for these numbers - a food for thought, that's for sure! I definitely need to re-think my priorities in image making.

Notice how Father's get short changed. Also the Halloween figures include those cheap households who turn off the lights and pretend they are not home on Halloween.

Oh I was wrong here is some data on Holiday spending:

According the recent reports from the National Retail Federation, here's how the US holidays rank in terms of spending habits. (I've rounded the figures to the nearest tenth of a billion to keep things simple.) The per person figures are rounded to the nearest five dollars and represent the amount spent by the "average consumer." The figures are estimates for 2006/7.

Christmas (Hanukkah and Kwanzaa) $457 Billion / $800 per person
Valentine's Day $14 Billion / $116 per person
Mother's Day $13.8 Billion / $115 per person
Easter $12.6 Billion / $110 per person
Father's Day $9 Billion / $100 per person
Halloween $5 billion / $60 per person

Only yesterday I read in a newspaper that Halloween is now the third biggest festivity in the UK - after Christmas and Easter. I thought in the USA it was Thanksgiving coming second after Christmas though. Great images by the way :-)

In the US, after Christmas, Halloween is the next biggest event people spend money on. Any its starting to get picked up in other countries (because its so much fun after all).
