The fall can be a very expensive time of year for families with back-to-school clothing and supplies, as well as fall sports registrations and supplies. With all of the early fall activities, many families may not have planned ahead for Halloween expenses. Halloween ranks as the third most expensive holiday, following Christmas and Valentine’s Day. This might surprise some people, since typically the holiday does not involve large gift giving or family events. Nonetheless, the price of costumes, candy, and decorations can add up.
