A poll was done by Monmouth. It surveyed people in the United States about their favourite holidays. The poll talked with 1,161 adults and found that 8% say Halloween is their favourite holiday while 37% say it is among their top holidays. The poll also found 53% of people do not have Halloween as a favourite holiday.
"It is a split decision on Halloween," said Murray in a statement. "Nearly half the country ranks it up there with their top holidays while the other half could do without it."
