Creep it real and other Halloween greetings to send to all your ghouls

Halloween has finally arrived and what better way to celebrate than by sending one of these Halloween sayings to friends and family?

Whether it's a simple "trick-or-treat," "hocus-pocus" or Shakespeare's classic, "Double, double toil and trouble," these messages are the perfect way to usher in the holiday.

And while you can never go wrong dropping one of these spooky quotes in a text or greeting card, why not take it to the next level by sending your boo crew a funny Halloween joke like, "It's official: I'm ghosting you" or "If you've got it, then haunt it."

To inspire you this year, we've conjured up a list of Halloween greetings to help make their holiday, dare we say, a total scream. And yes, pun totally intended.

From funny and cute wishes like "Creepin' it real, y'all," to familiar sayings from some of your favorite Halloween songs including "Ghostbusters," "This is Halloween" from "The Nightmare Before Christmas" and Michael Jackson's "Thriller," we've got everything you need to make them positively howl in delight.

So, grab a pen (or your phone if you plan on using one as a Halloween caption) and get ready to address the envelope because these greetings are all creepers, er, keepers that is.
