Is it a coincidence that Hallowe’en is the holiday closest to election day?
Or that Congresspeople are increasingly acting like zombies?
Or that Hallowe’en has become “one of the most beloved and anticipated consumer holidays“.
In 2012 the election caused a spike in costumes related to current events, but 2013 is seeing a return to more traditional costumes. The most popular adult costumes this year (in order) are Witch, Batman, Vampire, Zombie, and Pirate.
And for those of you who are sweet on Hallowe’en, there is even a list of the best cities for collecting trick-or-treat candy.
I’ll be a zombie this year. I hope to see some of you at my party tonight!
