Good Witch

Every year I don some kind of Halloween garb to answer the door when trick-or-treaters ring. In recent years, it has been a purple witch hat which is decorated with a spider web design. This year, for the first time that I can remember, I may not be home for at least part of the evening because it is my baby grandson’s first Halloween and I am planning to go visit him before his parents take him out in his costume. No spoilers about the costume, I will want to post it on

My daughter liked to sing this song when she was 3 years old:

“I’m stirring and stirring and stirring my brew

Ooooo ooo Ooooo ooo

I’m stirring and stirring and stirring my brew

Tip toe, tip toe, tip toe

Booo!!”    -author unknown

Both my son and daughter liked the book It’s Halloween by Jack Prelutsky and here’s the title poem:

It’s Halloween

It’s Halloween! It’s Halloween!
The moon is full and bright
And we shall see what can’t be seen
On any other night.

Skeletons and ghosts and ghouls,
Grinning goblins fighting duels,
Werewolves rising from their tombs,
Witches on their magic brooms.

In masks and gowns
We haunt the street
And knock on doors
For trick or treat.

Tonight we are
The king and queen,
For oh tonight
It’s Halloween!

I found a recording of the book on You Tube posted by Ben Thompson. It shows the same edition of the book that I had and the author is reading the whole book. It may bring back memories for you too:

Sometimes I wish I was a witch with special powers that I would use for good and not to hurt anyone except to give the bad guys a knuckle sandwich.  🙂
