Most of the Halloween costume business began at the beginning of October. Joann’s has a large selection of fabrics for making costumes.

They have rows and rows of costumes and props to help turn people into whatever they want to be.

Clown costumes are right up there, too, she said.
Spirit Halloween, a pop-up seasonal store in the Cache Valley Mall, claims to have the best and biggest inventory of costumes and their biggest seller is the Hocus Pocus Witches, said assistant manager Sean Horton.
The company is based in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey and has been around since 1983.

This is a witch story from a long long time ago:
There were 2 dynasties of twelve tribes. The first one was of King Saul. The day Saul was anointed, the seer or prophet Samuel said this to Saul:
Then shalt thou go on forward from thence, and thou shalt come to the plain of Tabor, and there shall meet thee three men going up to God to Bethel, one carrying three kids, and another carrying three loaves of bread, and another carrying a bottle of wine: (1 Samuel10:3)
The prophesy is about the day King Saul died some forty years later. The battle field was on the plain of Tabor next to to Mount Tabor. The night before morning, Saul visited a witch to seek counsel from sleeping prophet Samuel. Samuel told him he will die in the same day. He was so weak after the news, the witch made him a bread. The Hebrew word for the witch is oboe meaning a skin for water or wine. And three of Saul’s kids died in the same battle in the same day.
This is all true as the name Saul in Hebrew also means Sheol or grave. His dynasty lasted with two kings, him and one of his remaning son. The other dynasty was the Davidic dynasty which lasted twenty eight generations until Jesus according to Matthew Chapter one. The name David means beloved which our Father called from heaven He is my beloved Son.
