“This is my first year (playing the witch), I usually work in the kitchen and make the Christmas wreaths. I’ve worked for the Hozaks for 23 years. Christmas is my favorite holiday, but I love Halloween too. I love the kids and everything, that’s why when the one lady who played the witch had to retire to take care of her husband, I told Ellen (Hozak) I’d do it.”
