GLAD PÅSK TILL MINA NÄRA OCH KÄRA !!!!!!!!! MORMOR IA , PÅ VÄG ...

I have discovered a fascinating Swedish tradition centered around Easter: Easter witches.  påskkärringar.  On the Thursday before Easter (Påsk), Swedish children dress up like witches and go door-to-door hoping to get treats.    These witches don't look quite like our Halloween witches -- no peaked hats or black capes. Instead, these little witches look like Baba Yaga straight out of a Russian fairy tale, with headscarves, kerchiefs, aprons, and rosy cheeks.
