Google’s Halloween homepage features a witch and her cauldron.

In celebration of Halloween, the search engines have unleashed their creative juices with spooky themes — well, one is certainly more frightening than the other.

Google, which always seems to have a fun way to celebrate historic days or people, lets you throw a couple ingredients into a witch’s cauldron to play set of semi-entertaining mini-games.

It’s up to you to find out where each is hiding, and once you click, it will trigger visual and sound effects.

I’m giving the edge to Bing here — which is your favorite?
