Oh my gourd! Spooky season is upon us, but that doesn’t mean everything has to give you the creeps.

If you’re a Halloween fanatic like myself, these Halloween memes will bring some more fun to your holiday planning. They’re a little too relatable, will make you shriek with laughter, and will fit just your (blood) type of (candy) corny humor. You’ll be gobblin’ them up, right along your Reese’s.
