Trick or Treat — It’s Snapchat

Scary-good Halloween insights

Candy and costumes and trick-or-treaters, oh my! Of course, we’re talking about Halloween — a holiday that doesn’t happen just on October 31st, but is an entire spooky season.  
Snapchatters start to talk and think about Halloween as early as mid-September, and conversations begin to pick up in early October. Halloween-related conversations remain steady throughout the month and spike on Halloween day itself.
Halloween is all encompassing on Snapchat

Over half of Snapchatters plan to use Snapchat to connect with family and friends during the Halloween season.1 And this engagement comes in many forms — from Snapchatters trying on makeup and costumes through AR, to catching up on Halloween how-to publisher content in Discover, to binging a spooky Snapchat original. Snapchatters get into the Halloween spirit in ways that will matter for your brand.
