Netflix used its data to find out what time you’re most likely to be interrupted by trick-or-treaters on Halloween

Halloween quickly approacheth, and with a plethora of television series and movies to catch up on, there’s a good chance you’ll be spending your Monday night in front of the TV or your laptop.

But that means regular interruptions from eager trick-or-treaters – unless, of course, you’re one of those Halloween Scrooges who keeps your lights off.

If you’re handing out candy but also plan to be binge watching, it may be useful to know that pause rates increase on Halloween. And, more specifically, peak trick-or-treating time seems to come in at precisely 7:29 p.m. This is Netflix’s most paused time of the night, based on their annual viewing numbers.

To help you better optimize your viewing experience and face less of a disruption, the streaming network has offered a guide, timed around that dreaded 7:29 p.m. when something wicked comes your way.

And once the kids have run off, probably right around the 10 p.m. mark, and you decide to plough through the remaining chocolate yourself, take note: according to science YouTube channel Reactions, the average number of chocolate bars a human can eat in one sitting before they die is 262, with the candy corn limit at 1,627.

Sounds like a delicious way to go.
