Halloween is my favorite holiday, but not many people take the time to think about how much money is actually spent on getting ready for the day, which is where the Business Behind Halloween infographic comes in.

The chart takes into account all of the spending habits and profits being made off of Halloween. Some interesting examples include: people spend an average of approximately $72 on costumes, decorations and candy (with the largest portion of that going toward costumes), only 18.9% of people make their own costume, and in 2011, about $6.86 billion was spent on Halloween.

The Business Behind Halloween infographic also features a section on Halloween pop-up stores. Take a look at the statistics for a unique look at the spookiest day of the year.
