There are two kinds of people: Those who love, love, love Halloween, and those who like to rain on our parade. We get it. We’re a little obnoxious when we start jonesin’ for a PSL in March or planning our Autumn decor in July. But let’s just try to let people love what they love, right? The world is dark. Life is hard. Halloween is a chance to scoop the brains out of pumpkins and spook things up a bit. It’s our chance to come up with elaborate costumes and, for a few short hours, be absolutely anyone we want to be. Cheerleader? Sure. Headless Marie Antoinette? Great. Sexy pumpkin? I mean… are you just not trying or are you just a gigantic How I Met Your Mother fan? And, as Halloween gets closer, our excitement bubbles over and we start looking for ways to cope — like hot cocoa on a rainy day, a scary movie, or just digging up some silly pumpkin jokes and puns.

If you’re here, it’s probably because you’re looking for exactly that: Some silliness to get you into the spirit. None of those jokes are particularly hysterical, but they’re all worthy of a smile, at the least. These Halloween jokes are perfect for kids, classrooms, and sharing with your smiling barista as you order your first pumpkin spice latte of the season. Enjoy!
