The celebrations often involve costumes or make up, and while not all are intended to be scary they are held during the day and the night and vary greatly in the tone and type of remembrance and costume. Halloween can be quite scary or it can be beautiful, with any mixture of possibilities in between. To make it less scary and more fun there are a great many Halloween jokes, both for children and adults, with a full range of tone and mood.

The range of Halloween dad jokes is ever growing, it’s a form that continues to grow in almost any topic as dads find ways to make their children laugh, or roll their eyes. They are not all funny, in fact many are not funny at all, but it can be interesting to see what they come up with and sometimes the attempt is a little funny anyway. Generally lacking in amusement and pointing out something obvious or that has been seen incorrectly, these can be a source of embarrassment for children of all ages, but also quite funny int heir own way.
Why Are They Funny
The top Halloween jokes are funny mostly because of their inability to be true. The characters are often imaginary, involving ghosts or monsters, but adults will use scarier themes such as movie characters or those who have killed before, to make light of a scary situation. They are funny simply for the contrast against the backdrop of their topic. A little friendly ghost scaring a family, or a mummy coming unwrapped, aren’t likely to happen in their life experiences but they are within the realm of the imagination and can bring a little scare with their humour.
The relief from something funny becoming the mundane, becoming safe and even comforting, is one way to get a laugh from a joke, just one aspect of something being funny. Making fun of things that are scary to us or that could potentially hurt us gives back some control and feelings of safety. It’s funny to think of silly things happening to them, making them less scary and more human, relatable, and amusing.
Who Uses Them
Halloween jokes are seen everywhere in society, schools, bars, and everywhere in between. Once October comes around every year there is a change, the weather changes and the leaves fall, the changes in the air make changes in the environment. Children are especially prone to the cute Halloween jokes to bring a laugh to their friends, to include in their Halloween stories and preteens and teens who pass them around a campfire or on a night in watching scary movies. Adults use them on a night out, or around the lunchroom at work as they watch the kids go by dressed up, many dressed up themselves just like the characters in their own jokes.
What Do They Teach Us
Funny Halloween jokes teach us about our own fears and how to conquer them. That if you shine a light on the dark corners they are often harmless, empty, and just how you left them. They can also show children not to fear things that are different then them. From accepting that a mummy isn’t out to harm us, to learn about a ghost that shared a joke with a person, who does harmless pranks like any child, shows there isn’t anything to fear from differences between people. They help us learn acceptance, to give everyone a chance, and to look past appearances to what someone is really like.
While Halloween comes around once a year there are Halloween jokes and stories year round, people watch scary movies no matter the date on the calendar and a good Halloween joke can be funny at any time of the year. Heard in schools, buses, lunchrooms and bars around the world a well written Halloween joke can be well received and bring some amusement to all those who hear it. Helping children be less scared and teen be more scared, they serve more purposes then just a laugh. Acceptance is a theme that runs through many of the children’s version, whether it is on the surface and plain to see or hidden among nuances and behind the punch line. Showing other, more harmless, sides of the monsters that are all around us on Halloween night shows that everyone has a different side to them and that looking and being different doesn’t mean that it’s scary or dangerous. Some of the best things in life are hiding behind something else, don’t look as they really are, it is necessary to see beyond first appearances to see the truth of who someone is or what something is.
