Welcome to the Web's first page of quotes for Halloween! Back when I was a kid here in the desert it used to be chilly on Halloween night, but nowadays they all wear summer-style costumes. I usually go as a ghost writer. Ha, I jest. What I actually do is take the opportunity to eat far too much candy. Each year I'm waiting to see an Edgar Allan Poe, Hester Prynne, or a bookworm going down the street but no such luck yet. Well anyway, please enjoy the quotes! —tεᖇᖇ¡·g

Shadows of a thousand years rise again unseen,
Voices whisper in the trees, "Tonight is Halloween!"

Sign of the carnival of mirth;
Through the dun fields and from the glade
Flash merry folk in masquerade,
For this is Hallowe'en!

make me a child again
just for to-night!

On All Hallow Eve
What lots of fun we can make,
With apples to bob,
And nuts on the hob,
And a ring-and-thimble cake.

Is pretend that nothing can frighten you
And if somethin' scares you and you want to run
Just let on like it's Hallowe'en fun.

Funny faces, tall black hats,
Horns and ghosts and witches' cats.
We have many good things to eat
With boys at the door saying, "Trick or treat!"
