WalletHub agrees to,

"People love Halloween for a number of different reasons: candy, costumes, horror films, haunted houses, parties and more. If you’re one of the many Americans who count down to this holiday from the beginning of autumn, then you’ll want to make sure you’re in the most spook-tacular part of America on Oct. 31."

With Halloween next week, it makes sense to figure out if Michigan is the best place to celebrate the holiday.

According to this survey, it may not be.

According to this study, Michigan is not in the Halloween spirit!

Apparently, we suck!

The city of Detroit is ranked number 91 on the list out of 100.


To make matters worse, Detroit is also on the bottom of the list at number 100 for having the lowest percentage of potential trick-or-treat stops.

Do we not trick-or-treat in Michigan?
