Are you dressing your pet up for Halloween?

Is it OK to make your pet look miserable in his Halloween costume just for that photo? Take our poll:

If you voted YES, you’re not alone. The National Retail Federation expects that 16% of us celebrating Halloween this year WILL dress our pets up in a costume.

The most popular pet costume is expected to a pumpkin. That costume has had the top spot on the list for several years.

The beloved hot dog costume came in second. The dog/lion/pirate costume is expected to be the third most popular look. While bumble bees and devil costumes rounded out the top 5 most popular pet costumes this year.

Of course, spending this year on Halloween is expected to rise a little bit. Americans will spend a total of $9.1 billion on Halloween this year. That means the average household will drop $86.13 on the holiday.
