    Halloween Witch: Celebrated with a Google Doodle

    Halloween has been celebrated with a Google Doodle which lets you become a witch and create your own potion in her cauldron.



    Today's interactive Google Doodle is Halloween themed and features a green-faced witch a long, pointed noise and straggly hair.

    Today's interactive Google Doodle is Halloween themed and features a green-faced witch a long, pointed noise and straggly hair.

    Google users are initially invited to click on the witch's spell book, before they are taken to a cave-like space where the witch is busy stirring her bubbling potion.

    You are then able to choose between a number of ingredients including a skull, apple, bone and a blue-coloured substance in a bottle and throw them in the cauldron.

    Throwing the items in creates a puff of smoke in which the witch disappears from view.

    Google users are then taken to one of several mini games, including one in which you have to guess where a mummy is hiding among three coffins.

    The name Halloween is a shortening of All Hallows' Even, or All Hallows' Evening. All Hallows is an old term for All Saints' Day.

    Halloween seems to have grown around the ancient Gaelic festival of Samhain, marking the end of the light half of the year and the beginning of the dark half.

    Samhain was in part a sort of harvest festival, when the last crops were gathered in for the winter, and livestock killed and stored.



    But the pagan Celts also believed it was a time when the walls between our world and the next became thin and porous, allowing spirits to pass through.

    The practice of donning a scary costume may have stemmed from this belief, and the idea that dressing up as a ghost may have scared away other ghosts.

    The classic Hallowe'en jack-o'-lantern, a carved grinning pumpkin, seems to have come from an old Irish legend of a man called Stingy Jack, a miserly farmer who played a trick on the devil and as punishment was cursed to wander the earth, lighting his way with a candle inside a hollowed-out turnip.

    When the tradition moved to America pumpkins were used instead of turnips, as they were both more available and easier to carve.
