POLL: Is It OK to Dress Your Pet Up For Halloween?

October 10, 2017

Are you dressing your pet up for Halloween?

Is it OK to make your pet look miserable in his Halloween costume just for that photo? Take our poll:

If you voted YES, you’re not alone. The National Retail Federation expects that 16% of us celebrating Halloween this year WILL dress our pets up in a costume.

The most popular pet costume is expected to a pumpkin. That costume has had the top spot on the list for several years.

The beloved hot dog costume came in second. The dog/lion/pirate costume is expected to be the third most popular look. While bumble bees and devil costumes rounded out the top 5 most popular pet costumes this year.

Of course, spending this year on Halloween is expected to rise a little bit. Americans will spend a total of $9.1 billion on Halloween this year. That means the average household will drop $86.13 on the holiday.
