According to Swedish folklore, Skärtorsdag (the Thursday before Good Friday) is the day when witches and warlocks fly to Blåkulla for their annual feast. What they supposedly do there is nothing I discussed with the kids. I might have mentioned the word party or dancing with your cat. But hey, they don't need to know it all, just yet.

So Skärtorsdag my little witches went around to the neighbours, wishing them a Happy Easter with cards they'd made during the week (quite possibly the ugliest Easter cards in history, I had to bite my lip not to laugh), getting candy or small coins in return.

It was a good way to start the holiday. And the first time outside without jackets! I don't know what was more exciting, the candy or the fact that they weren't freezing. Poor children of The Pole.
