Puns can be extremely clever, and sure, if you're one to overuse them, they may very well make your friends want to roll their eyes. We've all been there. But most of the time, whether you hear a cheesy pun or a pretty solid one, I bet you're usually smiling at them. And to be quite honest, Halloween is the perfect holiday for puns... and it's almost here. From pumpkins to bats, ghosts to vampires, there are so many awesome characters and mascots of the holiday that make it really easy to drop a somewhat cheesy line. Halloween is also the perfect time for capturing all of those festive moments on your Instagram. Whether you're rocking your Halloween costume with the squad or hosting a pumpkin carving afternoon with your bae, the best way to combine great times and your punny sense of humor is to have an epic list of Halloween puns for Instagram lined up.

When your friends scroll through Instagram and see your punny captions — even if they have a bit of the cheesiness factor — they’ll be laughing on the inside right along with you. Puns are all in good fun, and everyone knows a great caption truly makes your entire post come full circle, and a drab one can totally ruin it. But puns can be kind of difficult to come up with on your own if you're put on the spot. No sweat if you're struggling, because I have you covered. Here are 55 Halloween puns you can use for your Instagram captions this year. When it's Halloween and you snap the most amazing picture with your friends that you want to post right away, use these puns, and get right back to partying the night away.
