Over 10% of all pet owners dress their pets in a Halloween costume and the number increases each year.

October 2002, at a pumpkin festival in Massachusetts, the heaviest pumpkin in the world tipped the scales at a mighty 1337.6 pounds.
The first jack o’lantern was made out of a turnip.
82 percent of children take part in Halloween festivities, along with a surprising 67 percent of adults, who also join in the fun.
U.S. consumers spend as much as $1.93 billion on candy for Halloween, making it the sweetest holiday of the year. Add to that $1.5 billion spent on costumes each year, and more than $2.5billion on other Halloween papaphernalia, such as decorations and crafts. Halloween is second only to Christmas in spending.
