More specifically, here’s the costume most searched according to city:

Anchorage, AK: Physician

Honolulu, HI: Moana

Augusta, GA: Mermaid

Not to say all couples are boring, but geez! The most searched “couples costumes” lean towards sure bets and a throwback to the 90s. What gives? No points for creativity here. You can do better, significant others.

  • Bonnie and Clyde
  • Beauty and the Beast
  • Forrest Gump and Jenny
  • Lilo and Stitch
  • Tarzan and Jane

Most searched Halloween sweets:

  • Donuts
  • M&Ms
  • Candy corn
  • Candy bark
  • Chocolate

Search interest in Halloween activities include:

East coast – haunted house

West coast – pumpkin patch

Idaho – corn maze

Halloween has about 3 times more search queries than “pumpkin” (which, by the way, has the highest search queries in Australia). Those top “pumpkin” searches include:

  • Pumpkin patch
  • Pumpkin pie
  • Pumpkin carving
  • Pumpkin recipe
    • pumpkin pie
    • pumpkin soup
    • pumpkin bread
    • pumpkin cake
  • Pumpkin spice
  • Pumpkin Halloween

Trending searches involving Halloween: “Halloween costumes” and “when is Halloween” are declining in search, for obvious reasons. At some point, if you aren’t prepared, you’ll need to wait until next year. See you in 2018!
