Halloween this year has been all tricks and no treats. The very idea of spending a holiday like Halloween indoors is disheartening. And let’s be honest, online parties are more of a hassle than they’re worth. Halloween or All Hallows Eve is celebrated on the 31st of October every year.
Historically, it was a day of spiritual importance to Celtic tribes as they celebrated the impending onset of winter. Through the years, Halloween has evolved into a more modern version, characterized by costume dress-ups, children going door to door collecting candy, and celebrating the spirit of the supernatural elements.
Due to the pandemic, however, Halloween parties have been suspended and children can not go trick or treat too. However, the spirit of Halloween still flourishes in the air, and most people resort to celebrate it indoors by decorating their houses in orange, black and white, dressing up as different characters with their families, watching horror movies online and binge eating candy and sweets.
You may have a few Halloween quotes or sayings memorized, but they’re probably the same ones everyone else is using too. If you’re looking for quotes that are unique and truly celebrate the spirit of Halloween, want an appropriate caption for that cute Halloween selfie, or just want to go that extra mile with your pumpkin carvings, we’ve got your back:
