ATLANTA,None - The pumpkins are carved, costumes picked out and the scary music is ready to play.

Halloween is finally here.

Halloween has gone from a night simply about getting candy to big business. CNN notes U.S. consumers spent more than $2.5 billion on costumes this year and that the average household has spent $21.05 in Halloween candy alone.

Need something to get you in the Halloween mood? Take a look at this house decorated for Halloween.

The home is in Riverside, Calif., but it isn't the first time the homeowner has decorated like this. Here's the 2010 house.

A little closer to home, haunted houses are a big draw in the Atlanta area. There's Chamber of Horrors behind the Masquerade downtown, 13 Acres of Hell in Conyers and Fear The Woods in Stockbridge, to name a few.

Nelson's News on visited a couple of haunted houses this year.

Walk though 13 Stories Haunted House in Kennesaw.

Or, meet the mad scientists at Netherworld in Norcross.

If you haven't picked out a costume or carved your pumpkin yet, it's probably a little too late for these ideas, but take a look anyway.
