What Your State is Googling on Halloween

With Halloween just around the (haunted) corner, the team at CenturyLinkQuote wondered what Americans are up to during this spooky season. And what better way than to take a peek at the nation’s search habits? Using Google Trends to look at top search queries near All Hallow’s Eve last year, the CLQ team found some answers. Discover what your state searched for on our map below and get ready to eat, drink and be scary!

Interesting Findings

  • Illinois may be Googling “razor blade in candy” due to a previous incident in 2012 where a local did find a razor blade in his daughter’s Halloween candy (Yikes indeed!).
  • Five states—Arkansas, Iowa, Missouri, Tennessee and Vermont—seem to be unclear about the holiday, as they are searching “What is Halloween?” most.
  • Three states are searching whether or not Halloween is satanic—Georgia, Ohio, and Virginia.
  • It may be no wonder that Wisconsin is one of the states searching most for “pumpkin carving ideas.” The Badger State has quite a few pumpkin patches and even had a unique underwater pumpkin carving competition last year.

Methodology

The CenturyLinkQuote data team curated a list of common Halloween topics, including some of the top Halloween-related search queries in 2017. They input those queries into Google Trends to get a state-by-state breakdown of search volume around each topic. The data was restricted to searches that occurred between October 30 and 31, 2017, so that the results would be indicative of what each state is Googling specifically on Halloween.
