Google on Thursday had visitors to its site join in the Halloween fun with an interactive doodle starring the "Halloween witch."
Visitors to Google's homepage ( were greeted with a doodle of a green, grim-faced witch reading her spell book, with a Play button waiting to be clicked.
Clicking on the Play button will trigger several instances of witchery where the user is asked to choose which of four items to throw into her pot - an apple, a bone, a bottle, and a skull.
Among the supposedly spooky results are a group of jack-o-lanterns, spiders, and hands rising from the grave.
In the meantime, a spooky sound plays in the background.
However, clicking on the spyglass outside the doodle will take the user to a Google Search Results page for "Halloween witch."
"As it falls on the eve of All Saints' Day, it has a religious significance for some Christians otherwise it is nowadays observed largely as a secular celebration," noted IBN Live.  — ELR, GMA News
