The team at wanted to know what Americans are Googling the most around Halloween this year! From “Candy” to “It” and even “Spirit Airlines”, they found the most-Googled queries in every state!

So how did this work? Well, the methodology behind this study was to determine each state’s favorite Halloween searches, analyzed the most popular Halloween-related terms using Google Trends Data to discover which searches people in your region showed the most interest in 2020. To improve the results, we gauged popularity in the ‘Holiday’ category.

So North Carolina…we Googled “Autumn” the most in 2020. Basically, that means we are all searching for autumn-related traditions and ideas in this state. Our neighbors down below are a little darker and enjoy searching Horror Movies.

Here are some of the most interesting findings:

  • Wyoming searched for bats more than any other state. (Interesting ha!)
  • California & Florida were eager to get back to their Disney parks this Halloween – checking Disneyland and Walt Disney World more than any other related search term.
  • Arizona, Connecticut, Georgia, and 4 other states were searching Autumn to get into the fall spirit!

My question is…Deleware what’s up with the body painting and is there something I should know about Alaska and the Day of the Dead. You can find the full study here!
