Dear children, welcome to Halloween with us. The stairs are being decorated again, the pumpkin signs are already carved, and the candy sack is ready. But there is nothing just to call. Then you have to think about something. After all, we only got a sack from Santa Claus (we didn’t know Halloween back then) if we said a little saying. And if you land the best spell, you might be rewarded with a piece of this wonderful pumpkin pie.
