With a health crisis underway, some have wondered: Is Halloween 2020 cancelled? According to Gen Z and Millennials, it is most definitely still on—with some big changes of course. This year, 89% of young consumers tell YPulse they plan to celebrate Halloween, which is a minute drop from 91% in 2019.
