      • Over seven million Americans buy Halloween costumes and accessories for their pets every year. In 2007, "Devil" was the most popular costume for our furry friends.

      • In 2007 "Princess" was the most popular children's Halloween outfit – over four million little girls, and perhaps some big girls too, wore a variation of the costume.

      • In 2007 Joe Jutras of Rhode Island grew the biggest pumpkin ever recorded: 1,689 pounds. Jutras' giant pumpkin beat the previous record set in 2006 by 187 pounds.

      • According to the National Confectioners Association, 90% of parents say they eat candy out of their kids' trick-or-treating stash: the most popular items to swipe are mini chocolate bars, while the least favorite candy among thieving parents is licorice.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Narrator: It's that one night where things aren't always what they seem. Blood flows without wounds, pumpkins are paired with power tools, cuddly theme parks turn creepy, monsters are made of latex and paint, terror becomes a virtue and laughter morphs into screaming. Don't try to run because there's nowhere to hide, it's Halloween Tech, on Modern Marvels.
