When it comes to understanding a year in the life of today’s youthful generation, you have two options. Either keep a watchful eye on Tiktok and Instagram’s most trending – or just show up to a Halloween party and learn everything you need to know about the last 12 months.
From Bernie Sanders and his oversized mittens, Donald Trump and the Vampire crazy of 2008 (the year that Twilight hit the big screen), the most popular costume of every year says a whole lot about where we’ve been, what we watched, and who we listen to – so this Canada’s most searched costume on Google for 2021 (according to FatherMag) should come as no surprise!
According to the publication (using data collected over the last month) Canada can expect to see a whole lot of green zip-ups, white vans, pink jumpsuits, and fencing helmets – as the term Squid Game was the most popular on the site.
In fact, it was also the most searched term worldwide, with the US, Ireland, the UK, New Zealand and Australia typing it like mad into the engine.
The other 9 most searched Halloween Costumes in the country?
Well, like Squid Game, many others reflected the effect media has had on us over the last year, but let’s check it out!
- Squid Game
- Harry Potter
- Harley Quinn
Shocked? We sure weren’t! From the 101 Dalmatians villain who saw her own movie this year to Harley Quinn, a character featured in 2020’s Birds of Prey, this list makes perfect sense to us – but we want to know what you guys think.
