Well, it’s Halloween Eve and believe it or not, it’s not too late to wrangle up a costume. We thought this was a pretty interesting Halloween infographic to share with you and wanted to see if you agree. We’re suspecting that this holiday is pretty high up there on the favorites list for our readers but check out what this survey determined.

Featured in a blog from Tada, “In our pre-Halloween infographic, we've coupled trending Halloween costume search terms (both popular and strange) from our sister site Bizrate.com and a survey of 7,315 online shoppers.”

Here are some interesting facts that resulted from the survey:

* Generation Y counts Halloween as 4th favorite holiday (after Christmas, Thanksgiving, and New Year's); Seniors rank it last, in 8th place.
* 33% of seniors dislike Halloween so much that they opt to turn out their porch lights and go out to dinner.
* 4/5 of shoppers plan to celebrate Halloween (30% with gusto, 49% in a smaller way).
* 38% will be putting on a costume, while 15% won't wear one but will put one on their kid.
* Someone out there is dressing up as Slutty Bacon for Halloween.
* 70% will spend at least $25 on Halloween costumes; 85% will spend at least $10 on candy.
