Witches and bonfires: Ostrobothnia celebrates Easter

Easter traditions in the western Finland region of Ostrobothnia are a grab bag of old superstitions and new rites of spring from both the east and west. On Easter Saturday, children dress as witches and go door-to-door in search of chocolate in the morning, and in the evening locals burn impressive Easter bonfires to repel bad spirits and usher in a good harvest.

Yeah I think that aspect is way stronger than the religious theme over here. I didn't get one single witch this year 13.gif

Now I have a bunch of chocolate eggs. I think I'll half them and fill them with chocolate mousse for dessert tomorrow. Topped with whipped cream and maybe some pomegranate hmm.gif

Oh my god, that shït is nasty. You guys have Halloween and Easter all messed up to begin with.
Three blondes died and are at the pearly gates of heaven. St. Peter tells them that they can enter the gates if they can answer one simple question. St. Peter asks the first blonde, "What is Easter?" The blonde replies, "Oh, that's easy! It's the holiday in November when everyone gets together, eats turkey, and are thankful and stuff..." "Wrong!," replies St. Peter, and proceeds to ask the second blonde the same question, "What is Easter?" The second blonde replies, "Easter is the holiday in December when we put up a nice tree, exchange presents, and drink eggnog." St. Peter looks at the second blonde, shakes his head in disgust, tells her she's wrong, and then peers over his glasses at the third blonde and asks, "What is Easter?" The third blonde smiles confidently and looks St. Peter in the eyes, "I know what Easter is." "Oh?" says St. Peter, incredulously. "Easter is the Christian holiday, that coincides with the Jewish celebration of Passover. Jesus and his disciples were eating at the last supper. Then the Romans took him to be crucified and he was stabbed in the side, made to wear a crown of thorns, and was hung on a cross with nails through his hands. He was buried in a nearby cave which was sealed off by a large boulder." St. Peter smiles broadly with delight. Then the third blonde continues, "Every year the boulder is moved aside so that Jesus can come out...and, if he sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter."
