The pumpkins are carved. The costumes are bought. The candy is sold out. Yup, it’s Halloween. Or, it almost is. As Oct. 31 draws closer and closer, adults and kids alike are getting in the Halloween spirit. And, for some, that means sharing some “spooktacular” Halloween quotes on social media. (Yes folks. I went there. Blame it on the candy corn.)
Seriously, how did people express their love for holidays prior to the invention of social media? In the days of ‘yore (or, you know, the ’90s) people would show their love for Oct. 31 by turning their homes into a temporary haunted house, spending hours crafting the perfect costume, and wearing said costume all day And, in some cases, into the wee hours of the morning.
Today, however, it’s a totally different ball game. The houses are still decorated and the costumes are still crafted, of course, but there’s the added pressure of making sure your social media accounts are just as frightful, festive, and fun. To some, that means utilizing the themed Snapchat filters. To others, that means sharing some insightful words of holiday wisdom with all of your followers.
So if you’re looking to bring the spirit of the holiday to your social media accounts, here are a few truly spooktacular Halloween quotes.
