Classic Halloween Greetings
"Double, double toil and trouble, fire burn, and cauldron bubble." - William Shakespeare
Halloween quotes like this one are so common to hear on the holiday, and it's no surprise why: This Shakespeare quote from Macbeth is one of the most famous lines in the history of English literature. Although Macbeth was a tragic play, this particular line has been repurposed many times in modern popular culture to carry a much more comedic tone. And we have to say we're huge fans of that change — especially when we hear tiny trick-or-treating witches recite it at our doorstep!
Moon Quote for Halloween
"When witches go riding and black cats are seen, the moon laughs and whispers, 'tis near Halloween." - Unknown
Although some Halloween sayings may start off sounding spooky, a lot of them end on a pretty darn cheerful note. Halloween moon quotes like this one are the perfect example. Even though some may shudder at the thought of witches and black cats, it's pretty hard for any of us not to smile when we think about the moon laughing — even if it's a creepy moon. Just imagine that signature glow beaming down a big grin to us on the holiday — and try not to grin yourself.
