As years pass by and traditions evolve, some things just don't change; like people's love of Halloween.
There are very few things that rank as highly in a child's — and some adults' — life than an evening of crazy costumes and free candy.
It seems though, that while the instability of the economy has affected almost all aspects of daily life, Halloween traditions are as alive and well.
According to Danielle Duval, manager of the Halloween Outlet in Worcester, people are buying up more festive garb than ever.
"Overall it's been a great year," she said. "Sales are up from last year."
The same holds true at Hot Costumes Halloween Store in Webster.
"We're up this year," said owner Dan Marcoux. "We were up last year, we're up this year."
