Time once again for the Easter witches

It’s that day again. The day that Easter witches come to my door asking for candy. The Swedish children dress up as witches on this day because Easter Thursday is the day that the witches fly to Blåkulla to dance with the devil, of course. Yep. very Easter-y. (Honestly, this is why I have so much trouble explaining the proper way to celebrate Halloween here).

Go ahead, Google it. Sweden is full of tiny witches trying to get your candy on Thursday. I’ve got mine ready by the door. My own little Easter witches are heading out this afternoon.  I may not understand this tradition, but hey – free candy!
