The ghost emoji often symbolizes a “BOO!” moment. It looks like the classic depiction of a cartoon ghost: the sort that can be easily replicated with a bed sheet! On some platforms, one of its eyes is noticeably larger than the other, and it usually has a large hollow mouth formed into an O-shape. The ghost emoji is rarely used to portray any actual fear to symbolize legitimate fright given that it looks very cute and cartoony: more of an Emoji the Friendly Ghost, than a poltergeist! Along with the skulls, ogres and demons, this emoji is particularly well utilized during the Halloween season!
