A prototypical magic word. Like other popular magic words such as alakazam and hocus pocus, abracadabra may have its origins in religious language. In The Book of Words, Lawrence Kushner suggests that its possible etymology is from Aramaic avara kedvara, "I create as I speak." According to the first creation story in the book of Genesis, this is a power of God, e.g. "And God said, 'Let there be light,' and there was light."

for a variant, see Avada Kedavara
Theo the Clown pulled his funny pointed hat off of his head and showed that it was empty. Then, holding it upright in one hand, he wiggled the fingers of the other hand over it and shouted "Abracadabra!" He turned the hat over and a whole universe fell out. "Something from nothing," he said, "Defies the laws of physics. Pretty good, huh?"
