Through out Hocus Pocus, The Sanderson sisters talk about cooking with margarine quite often. According to the movie, the sisters died, for the first time, in 1693.

There may be a hidden message that our young little minds were unaware of watching Hocus Pocus. Max (Omri Katz) offers to let his love interest Allison (Vinessa Shaw) light the black flame candle, she smiles and coyly declines. And here comes the real reason behind her sly decline.

Hocus Pocus takes place on Halloween in 1993. In reality, Halloween that year was on a Sunday and there was no full moon. And there actually had not been a full moon on Halloween since 1974, and, here's the real kicker, the next full moon to land on Halloween won't happen until 2020. Apparently the directors wanted to make the movie more Halloween-y by adding in the full moon aspect. It does make it a bit more prime for werewolves! Source
