75+ Halloween Greetings To Summon The Halloween Spirit

Halloween is the perfect time of year when the air is cool and leaves crunch underfoot. Clouds hang over the sky from the sweet-smelling smoke of a bonfire.

Historically, Hallows’ Eve is a time when the worlds between the living and the dead merge together.

There is never a dull moment during this holiday: carving pumpkins, visiting haunted houses, running through corn mazes, going on ghost tours, watching classic horror movies, and superheroes showing up at your door.

Whichever way you like to spend Halloween, there is always something special about letting your imagination and creativity wander. A text or greeting can easily put someone in the halloween spirit. If you don’t know where to start, you’ve come to the right place.

Like a pillowcase full of candy, below is a list containing over 75 Halloween sayings, from sweet and amusing to utterly spooky…
