Hot Facts about Halloween and Halloween in LA from WalletHub!
I have lots of details to share with you about Halloween 2018 and also Halloween 2018 in Los Angeles! All of this information is courtesy of WalletHub
It’s the spookiest time of the year, when superstition runs rampant and treats always come with the potential for a trick. But like with anything else, the more you know about Halloween, the less scary it seems. Did you know, for example, that ringing doorbells and lighting candles are thought to ward away witches, ghosts and evil spirits? And how frightening can haunted houses really be when charities operate 80% of them?
Even if you’re not prone to spooking, there’s always something interesting to learn about Halloween. For instance, 18% of people plan to put costumes on pets, and 72% of parents admit to stealing candy from their kids. And that’s just the beginning. To ease your fears and help you gain a new appreciation for this hallowed holiday, WalletHub explored Halloween from all angles.
Below, you can find an infographic filled with the best Halloween facts WalletHub.com staff could unearth.
