As an American, when I see kids in “costumes” dressed as Witches with brooms asking for candy, I think of Halloween. “In this imagery of the evil witch in a child’s body, there is a strong ambivalence and that’s what makes us laugh“.
When I first saw the feathers birch branches indoors for Easter decoration I thought it was lovely. Turns out is has a down side.
And let’s not forget the food. The food!
A traditional Easter lunch is likely to consist of different varieties of pickled herring, cured salmon and Jansson’s Temptation (potato, onion and pickled anchovies baked in cream). The table is often laid like a traditional smorgasbord (or smörgåsbord as it’s written in Swedish). Spiced schnapps is also a feature of the Easter table. At dinner, people eat roast lamb with potato gratin and asparagus, or some other suitable side dish. Source: Sweden.se
