Halloween is fast becoming a major unofficial holiday, at least based on consumer spending statistics. The National Retail Federation (NRF) forecasts that Americans will spend over $9 billion on the haunted holiday in 2018. According to the NRF, more than 175 million Americans will participate in the “holiday,” with average personal spending trending up to $83.79. That’s a lot of trick-or-treat spent on costumes, candy, snacks and Halloween parties.
The old-fashioned spooky nights of universal trick-or-treat are ending due to changing demographics and parental concerns. Back in the day, when neighborhoods were compact and social, parents would let the little ones loose on their own, and just expect them back with their bags full or candy by an hour certain. Unfortunately, we have devolved into a less safe society and parents need to keep a close watch on the Halloweeners. Recent studies show that less than a third of Halloween celebrants plan to actively trick-or-treat.
A major change in Halloween holiday practices is the move to parties and organized social events that don’t involve traditional outdoor trick-or-treating. Parents don’t want to deal with the vagaries of the weather or potentially unsafe conditions out on the street. Halloween parties are now in vogue; creating a new environment for increased spending on fashionable costumes, party favors and snack food.
The trend to home-based Halloween parties is good news for Beef Jerky Outlet fans. Parent don’t have to budget for dozens (or even hundreds) of little ghosts and goblins. Celebrating Halloween at home allows parents to allocate more and better treats per child. And this means more great stuff from the Beef Jerky Outlet!
