Halloween is less than a month away, which means we’re spending the next few weeks decorating pumpkins, eating candy corn, and making DIY costumes. If you're not comfortable trick-or-treating this year, there are still plenty of fun ways to celebrate at home. And if those activities aren’t enough to get you in the spooky spirit, we’ve rounded up our favorite Halloween quotes to get you ready for the holiday. 

Use them to inspire your funny Halloween letter boards, or borrow one for a Halloween Instagram caption. Whether you’re running “amok, amok, amok,” like the Sanderson sisters in Hocus Pocus ($5, Target) or donning your best all-black costume like Wednesday Addams from The Addams Family ($5, Target), these Halloween quotes and phrases are sure to get you in the holiday spirit.
