Every year, Halloween casts its spell over people of all ages. Of course, some of us catch the Halloween spirit more than others. You know the people we’re talking about – the ones who plan their costumes for months in advance, host elaborate haunted houses with animatronic props, and heap overly generous amounts of candy on trick-or-treaters.
Fortunately, you don’t have to go to those lengths to express your king-sized appreciation for the holiday. Sharing thoughtful Halloween wishes with your friends is another option (and as an added bonus, it doesn’t promote tooth decay).
To give you some ideas, we’ve assembled a witches’ brew of 31 Halloween greetings. These funny, cute, and clever sayings are sure to raise some spirits around All Hallows Eve.
Note: If you’re looking for Halloween birthday wishes, there’s a separate list for that.
