Haunted houses, pumpkin patches and candy – spooky season is finally upon us and Canadians can’t wait to celebrate! According to a survey conducted by Caddle, 52.7% Canadians celebrate Halloween every year.

Spooky season calls for splurging on candies, and as seen in Caddle’s featured article by Strategy, Gen Xers are the most generous when it comes to spending on Halloween candy.

With this in mind, Caddle asked our Daily Survey Panel of 8,400 Canadians about their thoughts on Halloween. Caddle discovered that the top reason for Canadians to celebrate Halloween is ‘to spend quality time with family and friends’ (41.3%), followed by ‘special effects/decorations’ (30%) and ‘wearing costumes’ (27.8%).
