      Americans expected to spend less money on Halloween this year

      A National Retail Federation survey found Americans plan to spend 6.9 billion dollars on costumes, candy, decorations and greeting cards this Halloween. That's down 14 percent from last year, but up from 2011.

      It breaks down to 75 dollars and three cents of spending per person celebrating the holiday.

      They'll spend a total of 1.4 billion dollars on costumes for kids, and 330 million dollars for pet costumes.

      Americans are expected to spend more than two billion dollars on candy.
