You can do the same during Halloween. True that fun and Halloween may not go hand in hand. However, if you wish to spice up your Halloween celebration more, then you could select the funniest ghost puns to compliment your ghoul or Halloween ghost getup.
If speaking specifically about Halloween, then it is certainly incomplete without interesting games. I still remember the fun we had the last time we played the pumpkin and witch’s broom race. Each of the participants had a broom in hand with which they had to take the pumpkin right up to the finishing line. Oh, how crazy that was!
Coming to the point. You could have a competition like ‘Guess the pun.’ Play the game solo or in teams. Those with the maximum number of guesses win. Questions like, ‘The beverage a ghost like the most is? “ Wait for someone to answer. Boo-tea or Boo-drink would be the correct answers.
This is another interesting one! ‘Ghosts’ diet because – they have to keep their ghoulish figure intact.’ The list of such tricky puns goes on. Check this space for more funny ghost puns.
