Halloween has special significance for children. Kids look forward to October 31 when they can play out their imagination and spook their friends. Retailers have realized the importance of this holiday, and stock up a variety of wild costumes for kids. You can get any costume -- from a pirate to Pinocchio.

On Halloween night, kids dress up in zany costumes, pretending to be scary monsters and weird creatures.

Share these wonderful Halloween quotes for kids to make the night a truly memorable one. Organize a Halloween costume party and encourage kids to dress up in wicked and wacky costumes.

    Near hollow caverns sportin,
    Then lads an' lasses aft convene,
    In hopes to ken their fortune,
    By freets that night.

    Floats like an atmosphere, and everywhere
    Wafts through these earthly mists and vapours dense
    A vital breath of more ethereal air.
