It's funny I always thought people hated Valentine's Day. But there it is second in retail sales lol. I spend so much less for Valentine's Day than I do for Halloween LOL

Anyway who cares if Halloween isn't in the top five or not. It's FUN!!

Oh okay, Sorry, I didn't see that part, that I can agree with, at the walmart i work at, when halloween is over, we still have a large amount of halloween product still left over, so in that way, I don't think it would be in the top 5 as far as retail sales go.

To be honest Wal-mart doesn't carry that much quality Halloween products, candy aside. Could be why there is so much Halloween items left.

This year I think we have one whole grocery aisle that isn't anything else but candy and then we have about 2-3 regular aisles that is costumes, props, masks etc etc..then we have a few other locations for halloween things, fabrics has well, fabrics of course and some other things like that, garden center carries the outside decor.

One thing to think about with Valentine's Day is that a lot of flowers are bought for that day, and flowers can be pretty expensive. Also those heart shaped boxes of candy can be up there too, depending on what you get.
