47. That sums it up nicely.

The adults have co-opted Halloween for themselves. My kids absolutely loved Halloween when they were little (they're both in their late 40's now). Costumes were always homemade. They'd come up with the idea and we'd help them make them. There was always a carving of the pumpkin with a real lit candle inside. We lived in the best neighborhood for trick or treating. They talk about it to this day.

Everything in this country has to be over the top.
