Easter 2009

Posted by Asian living in Sweden On 10:47 PM

The traditional Easter week in Sweden lasts from Thursday to Monday, and kicks off with a trick or treat-like candy hunt. Children dress up as påskkärringar (Easter witches) with long skirts, headscarves, painted red cheeks and freckles and go from house to house wishing people happy Easter. They get sweets in return for a drawing or song. Legend has it that the witches fly to Blåkulla (Blue mountain) the same night to meet the devil. Sweet-filled Easter eggs are the highlight of the celebrations for the children.
Good Friday is a national holiday and shops and companies more or less shut. People generally take it easy and hang out with friends and family.We organized a pot-luck Easter party & celebrate this day with Mattias´s brother & sisters. I ´d made some mini chicken pie, fried egg tofu & a few side dishes like marinated tomatoes with avocado, marinated garlic & sour cabbage ,salad and Mattias made a few tortillas wrapped with cheese, pesto & tomatoes sauce, Frida baked a chocolate cake for dessert, Emma brought some fruit, cheese with salted biscuits as snacks & Fredrik who is working in Poland brought some very delicious Poland sausages. I was quite surprise that my sister´s-in-law enjoy the egg tofu, I think egg tofu is best eaten when freshly fried, the corn flour made the surface of tofu very crispy, I love it! Nelina hide 3 large Easter egg so she could play egg hunting games with Emma,Frida & Fredrik. After dinner, we hunted more bunnies with nintendo wii Raman´s Vs Bunnies.
Love this games, the bunnies were so cute!

Traditionally, Easter Day Buffet normally consist of pickled herring, salmon, eggs, dishes, sweets and the traditional Easter drink "Påsk Musk" the flavour reminds me of F&N Sarsi. The eggs also symbolise rebirth – the Resurrection of Christ – which was why various egg-based dishes were eaten after Lent. Nowadays, Swedish still eat eggs prepared in different ways, and paint them to use as decoration.
Swedish Easter decoration is to decorate a bunch of twigs with different coloured feathers. This is what remains of an old Lent tradition, when Swedes used to whip each other with bunches of twigs on Shrove Tuesday or the morning of Good Friday – a reminder of the suffering of Christ.
