The witches have been linked with Halloween for a long time now. Witches before a long time ago were considered to be helpful girls who would treat people using natural remedies. As religion came to Europe the church people considered it a threat and associated them with evil spirits; the same story was passed on for decades.
Being an ordinary person they feared these women who had powers to treat people by making such mixtures called Elixirs. In those time rumors were also spread that witches would create potions that would make them fly on their broomsticks. Irrespective of the past the witches surely are one of the most used props in today’s Halloween decorations to scare people. People also dress as witches with costumes matching the image of a witch.
