Halloween Witch: Google celebrates Halloween with a witch Doodle

Google is celebrating Halloween today on Oct 31, 2013 with an interactive Halloween themed doodle. On opening the Google search page, a green-faced witch with a long, pointed noise and straggly hair can be seen flipping through pages of a spell book.

The interactive doodle lets users make the potion in the cauldron with various options. Users are taken to a cave-like space on clicking the witch with spell book. Check it out live here.

While the witch is busy stirring a bubbling potion, users have to click any two ingredients of a bone, an apple a skull or a blue bottle.

When two of the ingredients are clicked, all items vanish with a puffy smoke and the witch disappears from the screen.

Depending on the ingredients, user is taken to a mini game of spiders or a mini game of coffins where a mummy is hiding or another game of hiding ghosts. The games are accompanied by spooky sounds.

The festival activities include trick-or-treating by children and attending parties in costumes like vampires, ghosts, skeletons, witches, or devils.
