When October comes around, signs of Halloween are everywhere. And we mean that literally – people love decorating their homes with Halloween signs of all sorts. These signs are typically emblazoned with a few well-chosen words that conjure up everyone’s favorite spooky holiday.
There’s certainly no shortage of Halloween-themed words and phrases to work with. Like other major holidays, Halloween has a rich history and its own unique lexicon. It also picks up new associations as the years go by, drawing from sources like horror movies and the Harry Potter universe.
Here’s a list of fun Halloween phrases – some well-known and some novel. Use them for your own signs, slogans, crafts, or even to carve into the side of a Jack-o-Lantern. Because when October 31 draws near, you never know where you might encounter the spirit of Halloween.
Note: If you’re looking for some clever wording to put on a tombstone prop, there’s a whole article dedicated to that.
