I did a yahooo answers poll "Which do you look forward to more? halloween or Christmas?" and 66 percent answered yes or definitely to christmas while the rest said "both" which means none indicated 'only' halloween and all were in favor of christmas. another poll indicates 80 percent for christmas and 20 percent for halloween. this explains why plenty of stores like sears, lowes, canadian tire, rona, bombay ect skip much or all of halloween while, those that do do halloween never skip christmas although that is obvious.
