Glad Påsk-In old Swedish folk tales, an Easter witch is a woman who flies on a broomstick to the island of Blåkulla, either on Maundy Thursday or on the night between Holy Wednesday and Maundy Thursday, to return on Easter Sunday. Modern-day Easter witches instead hand out Easter letters, wishing everyone a Happy Easter and often receive sweets in return.
