New on the Examiner: The most popular costumes for the whole family for Halloween 2012

If you’re like me, you’re suffering from cabin fever because of Hurricane Sandy.

Halloween’s a big business here in the United States. Another religious holiday that is now commercialized, Halloween is now a multi-billion dollar business. According to the National Retail Federation, Americans will spend more than $2.8 billion on costumes for the whole family (themselves, the kids and pets).
