Children, choose your character
I know this isn't the season for this at all, but while I was in Sweden for NärCon I learned about the Påskkärring, who was explained to me as an easter witch who isn't really a witch but kinda is anyway.
Children dress up as her and go ask for sweets. Boys can dress up as her too, but have the option of dressing as an old man if they want. From what I was told the witch costume is still the most popular for all genders though because it's more traditional.
