(CNN) - Like lots of people, when October 31 rolls around, Trey Capnerhurst dons a pointy hat and doles out candy to children who darken the door of her cottage in Alberta.
But she’s not celebrating Halloween. In fact, she kind of hates it.
Capnerhurst says she’s a real, flesh-and-blood witch, and Halloween stereotypes of witches as broom-riding hags drive her a bit batty.
“Witches are not fictional creatures,” the 45-year-old wrote in a recent article on WitchVox.com.
“We are not werewolves or Frankenstein monsters. We do not have green skin, and only some of us have warts.”
So don't be a HATER!!!!May the FORCE be with you!

At least Laurie Cabot and the witches of Salem, MA, embrace Halloween and the city of Salem even has an emblem with a witch on a broomstick (I think it's on their cop cars). Of course, the witch emblem has a figure more like Samantha Stevens than Bugs Bunny's witch nemesis, but still. The kids of Salem will still get candy.
