50+ Witch Puns to Make You COL (Cackle Out Loud)

Witches have come a long way. In the past, to be identified as a witch meant being feared, despised, and persecuted. Today, people dress as witches each October without the slightest fear of being burned at the stake. In fact, an increasing number of people make witchcraft a year-round lifestyle.

The mystique of witches, combined with their long and unique history, make for some enchanting wordplay. With a little eye of newt and toe of frog (plus a few other witchy things), we’ve brewed up the following concoction of witch puns. They’re perfect for Halloween greetings, social media captions, or whenever you simply need a good cackle.
