Weekly photo challenge: Launch

Christmas has just been finished and I already miss the good holiday-feeling. So goodbye Christmas and hallo EASTER! I hereby make an early launching of you…

It is very usual that big paper eggs filled of sweets to the children comes from this easter animal. We have a lot of old easter traditions in Sweden. Have you heard about the easter witch, riding on a broom to a horrible place called Blåkulla? Children often dresses themselves like easter witches, but in a rather sweet and harmless way. We take small twigs from birches and put them in a vase inside the house. In the twigs we put feathers in different colours. It is a symbol for the leaves from the palm tree when Jesus came to Jerusalem. We eat a lot of sweets and a lot of eggs during easter. Easter in Sweden is a mix of what people have believed in, superstitions, and christian traditions.

Om Britta

Jag tycker om ord. Formulera ord. Skriva ned min tankar om livet. Det liv som jag aldrig helt kommer att förstå. Jag försöker bara göra det lite mera förståeligt. Genom att skriva. "I like words. Formulate words. Writing down my thoughts about life. The life that I never will completely understand. I just try to make it a little more understandable. By writing."

      It sounds a little bit more scary, than what it actually is. I think one could compare the tradition with Halloween, without horrible disguises:-)
