Happy Easter!

Easter's like a Halloween to us Finns. Kids dress up in rags, too-big skirts, and scarves to look like witches. Then they go door to door with a copper kettle and catkins looking for treats.

We have Easter fires (pictured here) to scare the witches away: An old belief tells that witches fly to a German mountain the Thursday before Easter to cavort with Satan. On their way back we light fires and hope that the witches go away. (www.time.com)

Quite scary, isn't it? I hope that we really did scare them off this time..
