Happy Easter witches of the world ;)

From my entire stuffed animal family, my lovely boyfriend, my Easter Twigs and The Witches of Easter:
Happy Easter!
:)

 

Here you can read a little bit about how we celebrate Easter here in Sweden :D

(these are some parts from this article I copied)

“In England, we celebrate Easter with bunny rabbits and chocolate eggs. In Sweden, they associate Easter with birch twigs, gaily-coloured feathers and … er… witches!

………………………………………………………………………………

…………………………….

In ye olde days, Swedes believed that covens of witches flew away to Blåkulla (Blue Mountain) on their broomsticks on Maundy Thursday in order to cavort with the Devil.

………………………………………………………………………..

girls dress up as Easter witches and come knocking on the door in a sort of trick-or-treat manner..........”

Go read the full article.
It has some pictures too :)

 ( oh, the only thing is, she says that boys and girls go trick-or-treating but it is wrong, it is only girls.)
