As a kid growing up, Halloween was second to Christmas as my favorite holiday.
For years, the idea of dressing up as the Six Million Dollar Man, Steve Austin and getting free candy made me so anxious the night before that I couldn’t sleep.
As I grew older, my fandom of Halloween waned through my teen years and 20’s because of a near-blinding accident that occurred to me when I got hit in the eye by an egg that ruptured the iris in my left eye – no joke.
Since then I couldn’t care less about All Hallow’s Eve – that was until my wife and I had kids of our own.
Now it’s fun again for me, because it’s fun for them.
Whether you hate or love Halloween, I think you’ll find this infographic interesting from the U.S. Census Bureau which breaks down Halloween by the numbers.
