The Witch: A Symbol of Halloween
Witches and Halloween have gone hand-in-hand for hundreds of years. At one time witches were greatly feared and it was believed that their power was greatest on Halloween (Samhain). With the transition of the seasons and constellations it was believed that the veil was thin between the magical and mundane world on Hallow's Eve allowing the witches to draw power from dark unknown forces.
Because witches and Halloween are so well intertwined they make for great decorations. Popular symbols of the witch include:
- Pointed witch hats
- Shoes with pointed toes and buckles
- Striped socks
- Grotesque hands with long pointed fingers
There is a great selection of witch candles and candle holders that incorporate these classic symbols of the witch.
