15 Halloween memes for any parent who needs a chuckle

Take a break from stress-ordering your kid’s fourth last-minute costume demand to have a laugh at Halloween’s expense.

Halloween is just around the corner and what a wild time of year it is. A symphony of stressors is constantly playing in your head—will your kid agree to wear their costume on Sunday, will they be safe while trick-or-treating, will the weather hold out and how much candy is too much candy to secretly binge every night?!

Even with all that stress, it’s also such a sweet time when all the stars align and you get a dry night watching your little Hulk and Baby Shark gleefully running from house to house, filling their bags of candy and later dumping it all out to excitedly take stock. Like so much we do as parents, it’s a whirlwind.

It’s also pretty hilarious at times, so we’ve rounded up the best Halloween memes we’ve seen this year. Hope your night is fang-tastic! (Couldn’t help myself.)
