Halloween 2016 is finally here, and folks searching for some great quotes to share on social media can find all the creepiest and funniest Halloween sayings right here.
As far as holidays go, Halloween has always been in a class by itself. Though it’s one of the most beloved of all holidays (especially by kids of all ages), Halloween isn’t given the same reverence as others like Christmas or Thanksgiving. So while there are plenty of Halloween-themed horror movies, but no real songs about the holiday (unless you count the “Monster Mash”) and not a lot of love from the greeting card industry.
That makes finding Halloween quotes a bit more difficult. There are scant few websites dedicated to sharing funny or scary sayings about Halloween, especially compared to Christmas or Valentine’s Day.
With that in mind, you can save yourself some work and look here for the best quotes to share on social media or just with friends this Halloween 2016.

So if you’re looking to share some funny Halloween quotes, here are the best to choose from.
