Halloween Special Feature: My Favorite Witches

Happy Halloween! I thought I'd honor today by posting photos of my favorite Witches. Before I offend any Wiccan readers, I wish to state that these are of course, representations of Witches created by Hollywood and in fairy tales. I've actually met a few real Witches, many many years ago when I lived near Salem, Massachusetts, and also in NYC some time ago. If you are interested, here are two real, living modern day Witches: Laurie Cabot, the Official Witch of Salem, and also Lexa Rosean, The Witch Doctor.

Above: Real Witch Laurie Cabot, The Official Witch of Salem, Massachusetts

Above: The Wicked Witch of The West...oh how she scared me ever so!

Above: Everybody's Favorite Witch, Samantha Stevens, from Bewitched!

Above: Professor McGonnegall from the Harry Potter series

Above: Glinda, the Good Witch

Above: Endora, the mischievous mother-in-law!

Above: Blast from the 80's, The Witches of Eastwick was a cool flick, with Cher, Michelle Pfiffer and Susan Saran Wrap.

Above: From the movie Hocus Pocus, Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy were a lot of fun, even if it was a kiddie movie.
Did I leave out any of your favorite Witches? Leave a comment!

Oh, how about Wendy the Good Little Witch. I think she's a spin off of Casper.
Do you remember her?
Happy Halloween.

I must admit, my favorite witches had The Power of Three going for them. The sisters of Charmed - they looked great and kicked demon ASS every day.

Broom Hilda...well, she isn't my favorite but I don't think anyone has mentioned her.

My favorite witch from the Wizard of Oz is the one under the house. All you see are her feet where Dorothy's house has landed. Her sister seems quite loyal to her and I totally understand why the Wicked Witch of the West would be looking for revenge. As a kid, I always felt bad for the Wicked Witch of the East.
