Pink Thursday…


On skär torsdag (pink Thursday) in Sweden, tots dress up as witches (even the boys… I have seen some lovely kiddie-drag versions of my closest guy pals) and go door to door, reminisant of Halloween. This tradition stems from pagan tales of witches gathering on this day at the “blue hill” (blå kulla) to meet with the devil. Unlike Halloween the kids don’t just take, the candy is usually exchanged for hand made Easter greetings.

Would have loved to color it properly… but I am still rather bed bound! Hihi…sigh…
