On the business of Hallowe’en (redux)

Published October 27, 2014 by Mark Bodnar

With just days to go until that special spooky night, it seems a good time to resurrect an old post: On the business of Hallowe’en.  Check it out for reports, analysis, and more on the monetary implications of all those ghosts, ghouls, and gremlins. Most of the links in that 2012 post seem to still be active, and I suspect that the few that aren't have been updated in this National Post story published today: The $1-billion fright economy: How Canadians are now outspending Americans on Halloween. Happy Hallowe'en, all!  Be safe. -- MarkB
