Most Say Halloween Is Not Just For Kids

Halloween still doesn’t register as an important holiday for most Americans, but they also continue to say adults are just as welcome to get in on the fun.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only five percent (5%) of American Adults consider Halloween - celebrated tonight - one of the nation’s most important holidays. Fifty-six percent (56%) think it’s one of the least important holidays, while 37% say it’s somewhere in between. These findings are in line with regular annual survey for several years.
