Spooky season's in full swing, ya'll! By now, the decorations have been hung, the skeletons have been erected on the front lawn, and you've probably already purchased candy to hand out to the trick-or-treaters next week.

Halloween is almost here. Here in the Garden State, it's a pretty big deal. Fall specifically is a big deal here in New Jersey, but we sure do love Halloween. Don't forget, the town of Haddonfield in the "Halloween" movies with Michael Myers was inspired by the Haddonfield in Camden County, South Jersey. Also Netflix's new series "The Watcher" is based on a house within the town of Westfield, NJ. So, aside from Salem, Massachusetts, not sure you need any more proof that New Jersey is THE PLACE to be for Halloween-lovers.

When it comes to trick-or-treating, Jersey City ranks even higher. The survey found that this NJ town is the second-best place in the entire country to take your kid out to collect their candy. Apparently, the city really gets a kick out of all the kids knocking up for some treats.

It's good to know that New Jersey residents are good sports when it comes to trick-or-treating. After all, Halloween can get EXPENSIVE! Did you know that an estimated $10.6 BILLION will be spent this year in preparation for the climax of spooky season? That's BILLION with a "b".
