All Hallows' Eve is right around the corner, and according to everyone's favorite movie of the season, Hocus Pocus, "It's the one night of the year where the spirits of the dead can return to Earth." Whether you believe in ghosts stories, you have to admit that seeing all of the Halloween decor this time of year truly gets you in the spirit of things.

Though, if you're like the Ghostbusters and you "ain't afraid of no ghosts," you embrace the unknown, and probably have a few otherworldly plans this season. You and your ghoulfriends might have tickets for a haunted graveyard tour, or perhaps you have plans to drive through a haunted Halloween experience.

Whatever your plans may be, when you're about to post a spooky snap to the 'Gram, there's no need to call in the spirits on this one. I've assembled you a list of 35 ghost puns to use when you're in need of a truly haunting caption.
