It's that scary time of year again! Halloween is celebrated on 31 October every year, and all are gearing up for trick-or-treating and going to fancy-dress parties.

The holiday was inspired by the Irish Celtic festival Samhain, which celebrates the end of the harvest season. On the occasion, IBTimes UK has put together a list of ten quotes for Halloween 2015.

  • "Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and cauldron bubble." - William Shakespeare
  • "Everyone is a moon and has a dark side, which he never shows to anybody." - Mark Twain
  • "There is a sacred horror about everything grand. It is easy to admire mediocrity and hills; but whatever is too lofty, a genius as well as a mountain, an assembly as well as a masterpiece, seen too near, is appalling." - Victor Hugo
  • "Men fear death as children fear to go in the dark; and as that natural fear in children is increased with tales, so is the other." - Sir Francis Bacon
  • "It's said that All Hallows' Eve is one of the nights when the veil between the worlds is thin - and whether you believe in such things or not, those roaming spirits probably believe in you, or at least acknowledge your existence, considering that it used to be their own. Even the air feels different on Halloween, autumn-crisp and bright." - Erin Morgenstern
  • "Clothes make a statement. Costumes tell a story." - Mason Cooley
  • "Halloween is huge in my house and we really get into the 'spirits' of things." - Dee Snider
  • "A grandmother pretends she doesn't know who you are on Halloween." - Erma Bombeck
  • "If human beings had genuine courage, they'd wear their costumes every day of the year, not just on Halloween." - Douglas Coupland
  • "I would love if gay men responded to me. All I want is for many gay men to dress up as me for Halloween." - Mindy Kaling
