If you love the creepy time of the year where the undead roam the earth and department stores mark-up their candy, then you may be interested to know some of the statistics listed on the 'Halloween by the Numbers' infographic.

Assembled in a collaboration between History.com and Column Five, the chart shows the interesting numerical values that the average American indulges in with Halloween hijinks.
