Adults Celebrate Halloween



Halloween is no longer just for children. Adults are enjoying dressing in costumes, decorating yard and home, and even indulging their pets in the festivities.

Money spent for Halloween is rivaled only by Christmas decorations. Every year since the 1980's adults have increased their interest in celebrating Halloween.

Stores report selling twice as many adult costumes as children's costumes. There has been an increase in pet costumes as well.

The emphasis on taking care of the environment has many people thinking about Mother Earth and Nature. That's one important reason that many adults are beginning to take a more serious look at the real reason for Halloween.
