Halloween traditions certainly have evolved since we were kids. Back then, our prep work consisted of picking out a costume at the discount store and perching a jack-o'-lantern on the front porch. Today, it's all about creepy animated lawn displays, orange and purple lights everywhere, watching YouTube tutorials on trompe l'oeil face painting, and posting clever Halloween Instagram captions to go along with pictures of your family's costumes and parties.
Instagram was practically invented for Halloween, when you think about it. How else can you show the world your family's outfits, your decorated pumpkins, the school carnivals and street festivals, and the candid moments of kids trying to creep each other out? But a good Insta post also includes a witty or otherwise appropriate caption to make the picture complete.
If you need inspiration for your own posts, try one of the 20 that I found especially funny. You can look to Pinterest or to Instagram itself for more ideas, or try coming up with some of your own. You can't go too far wrong with variations on "witch," "fang," "boo," "haunt," or "ghoul" (one of the popular captions this year is #SquadGhouls). Or research some of the quotes from such Halloween classic movies and TV shows as Beetlejuice, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Hocus Pocus, or It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. (That last one contains one of the greatest quotes ever: "There are three things I've learned never to discuss with people: religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin.")
