Halloween is arguably one of the sweetest holidays of the year. When else would it be acceptable for the average person — kids and adults alike — to put on a costume and shamelessly beg for candy?
And this year, we have the good fortune of celebrating Halloween on a Saturday. With more than 100 million places to trick-or-treat in America and 49 million people planning to host or attend a Halloween party, there are more than enough ways to justify throwing on a silly costume and enjoying the day.
But if that's not enough to convince you to join the fun, maybe these numbers from Mars and Wrigley will help change your mind.
