Halloween special: Play the Google doodle game and become a witch!

The spooky-themed interactive doodle on Google page will let you get into the true spirit of Halloween

Although we are a few hours away from Halloween, which is celebrated on October 31 ever year, Google has already updated its homepage with its Halloween special doodle. The Halloween doodle features an aged witch going through a huge manuscript that includes information related to witchcraft.

After clicking on the play button of the doodle, the witch starts with her practise and gives the viewer an unique opportunity to participate with her in the proceedings. With a spooky sound in the background to add to the effect, the procedure has four different items to chose from– a bone, bottle, skull and an apple– out of which the witch lets you chose two items to perform her witchery.

To know what happens next, check out the google doodle here.

History of Halloween:

Halloween is a holiday celebrated on the night of October 31. The word Halloween is a shortening of All Hallows’ Evening also known as Hallowe’en or All Hallows’ Eve.

Halloween has its origins in the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain (pronounced “sah-win”). It is a celebration of the end of the harvest season in Gaelic culture. Samhain was a time used by the ancient pagans to take stock of supplies and prepare for winter. The ancient Gaels believed that on October 31, the boundaries between the worlds of the living and the dead overlapped and the deceased would come back to life and cause havoc such as sickness or damaged crops.
