Do we still have Halloween Spirit? Since 2017 only 48 percent of adults and adolescents wore a costume. Then only 171 million Americans celebrated Halloween in 2016 and  157 million Americans celebrated Halloween in 2015 (pumpkinpatchesandmore.org). Only 15 million people were added to the numbers of Americans celebrating Halloween in 2016. Now with these statistics, it’s time to put them to the test to see how many students or even staff members dress up or celebrate Halloween.
