Americans Will Spend $310 Million This Year on Halloween Pet Costumes

According to the National Retail Federation, Americans are expected to spend $6.68 billion on Halloween this year.

Included in that sum is an astounding $310 million spent on costumes for people’s pets. Give Americans credit: We can suffer through a recession, gross economic turmoil, a foreclosure epidemic, and a tepid stock market, but we sure as shit aren’t skimping on the dog costumes.
