Child dressed as a påskkärring (Easter witch), 1932, Sweden.
“In Sweden and parts of Finland, a mini-Halloween takes place around Easter when children dress up and go door to door looking for treats.
The tradition is said to
come from the old belief that witches would fly to a mountain the
Thursday before Easter to cavort with Satan.” (Source)
