Easter in Sweden

Foods, Traditions and Witches!

In Sweden they celebrate Easter but not really to celebrate the resurrection of Christ, instead Easter is all about twigs, feathers, egg hunts, fish and witches!

Traditionally Easter in Sweden lasts from the Thursday until the Monday or Easter Monday as is commonly called. They celebrate like they do at Christmas although they don’t dress up a tree. Instead they get birch twigs and decorate them with multi coloured feathers and brightly painted eggs which they have boiled first. But in ages gone by they celebrated with other traditions too.

Every chapter is meticulously researched and written and highlights some interesting facts about Easter, and the recipes are second to none!

  1. Chapters include “Why We Eat Lamb” which tells you how the idea of eating lamb for Easter came into being.
  2. Or why we have the German’s to thank for some of today’s popular traditions.
  3. What’s the connection between the Swedish, witches and birch twigs!!

Easter in Germany

A country of many different traditions and cultures, Germany celebrates Easter in the same way most Christian countries do and that includes eating lamb, something the Germans don’t eat until Easter. They also have a big way with other special foods, cakes and eggs. And talking of eggs, did you know that the Easter bunny came from the Germans?

But what other traditions do the Germans have today and are any of them from days gone by?

Cover for my New Book

The picture I am using is from my brilliantly talented (in more ways than one…) Kathrin, I did the hard work though!!

I was asked a few days ago for some pictures of round where I live. Now I already had some on here but I have taken 1 or 2 more and found some from last week which I want to share with you.

Where's the road gone?

Driving in winter here in Sweden can be a dangerous thing. One night the guy opposite me put his car in the ditch across the road and a farmer helped him out, THEN 2 days later he put it in another ditch nearby!! Laugh I nearly choked on my peanuts when I drove past his snow-covered car on my home from getting supplies! It’s a pity I didn’t take my camera with me.

Through the woods

Those 2 were taken last week I think!

It won't melt!

Yesterday the sun was shining and the gentle breeze was from the south-west and it felt warm. So warm in fact I was writing in the garden with just a t-shirt on. Usually you go out dressed up like an Eskimo!

I Love to Cook

I love cooking and baking, I bake my own breads, cakes and biscuits as you can see.

1 afternoon's baking

Homemade bread tastes and smells delicious

I did these last Friday, bread, pitta’s biscuits and a plum-cake. The pitta are a mixture of cheese and plain. Lightly toasted they are stunning especially for breakfast.

Well you can see I am kept busy. In between writing for a living I cook and bake, clean and wash and even find time to take some pictures!!

Hope you like em.
