When I was little, there were always commercials for the Blair Witch Project on TV. I would make my dad get rid of the witches before I went to sleep. However, looking under the bed wasn't enough. I made him spray 'Witch Replant' all over my room. It was actually Lysol spray that he took a sharpie to.

I used to believe that when I turned 16 I would become a witch. I was interested in witches and read many books about them so I must have gotten the idea from a book. I also was convinced that being a witch was inherited and that my mother was one, but she wouldn't tell me. She has long black hair and people would tell her she looked like a witch, so I was sure she was waiting to tell me until I was 16. Unfotunatly I didn't become a witch, but my mom later told me that she wanted to be a witch when she was a kid too. So, I guess the desire to be a witch does run in the family!

I used to believe that on New years Eve a witch would fly past on a broomstick waving a banner saying "Happy New Year". Tyhe witch was bringing the new year in and if you didn't stay up to watch her the New Year wouldn't come. Due to my mums birthday being New Years Day, i always thought it was very unfair that she didn't get to wave the banner.

When I was 4-5 years old, I heard my mom call midnight the "witching hour". I had a sleepover at my friend Jami's house and we were up late. It was 12ish and since we were still up I freaked out and ran into her parents room screaming because I was convinced that witches were coming to get us.

After watching Matilda, I was convinced I would have magical powers if I harnessed them long enough. When I was 8, I spent my one entire lunch period of 45 minutes staring at a leaf.

I thought my mother was a witch until I was well into my teens. She just seemed so magical in the way she moved, and always knew exactly what to say. As a child, I always thought that when I came of age, she would tell me I was a witch too, and would train me in the ways of magic. I really liked Halloweentown.

When I was little I thought if I slept with my hands beneath the pillow, witches flying past my bedroom window could not see me.

As a child I believed that if my feet or any part of me poked over the edge of the bed at night evil creatures would eat that bit of me. I also believed that witches ate your ears, so wrapped a blanket around my head. I am 31 now and still sleep in a tight ball with head and feet covered. Scary!

When I was little, I believed that radio towers were where witches lived. The bigger the tower, the more powerful the witch. If a witch caught you on or near her (because only women were witches), she would kill you, make you into pancakes, and eat you with lots of butter and syrup.

When I was little we kept our bikes in the garage in front of the car, along with the lawn mower and gas cans. As a result, the garage smelled like gas, and I convinced myself that if I breathed in the air in the garage, the witch that lived there would enter my body and possess it. Needless to say, I became very practiced at drawing a huge breath of air, racing into the garage, grabbing my bike, and dashing out the door, all before breathing in again.

When I was little, we lived in a house with yellow carpet in the hallway. After watching the Wizard of Oz, I got it into my head that if I stepped on the yellow carpet, the Wicked Witch of the West would fly out of the dark bathroom at the end of the hall and kidnap me. That's when I began jumping across the hall into my room without touching the carpet in order to to avoid the Witch.

When I was about five or six, my best friend told me that a witch was trapped in one of my bouncy balls, and If I didn't set her free she would take away all of my toys and haunt me forever. I believed her and ran crying to our moms!

When I was around 5 I was told that when it rains while the sun is out it means that a witch is getting married.
It rained when the sun was out at my cousin's wedding a few days after I had learned about this. It scared me so badly that 20 years later she still freaks me out a bit.

I used to believe that the white smoke trail left in the sky by aeroplanes was actually a smoke trail left behind by witches on their broomsticks!

Because my step mother's birthday was on Halloween, I thought she was a witch. I always wanted to be with my dad on Halloween because I wanted to see her turn into a black cat.

My mother told me that if I didn't keep my feet covered with the blankets when I slept witches would come from under the bed and eat my feet off. To this day I need something covering my feet at night ( even in summer )...ta Mum
