Children, choose your character 4 8, 3:56am

En Påskkärring is a witch, and the candy they collect is for their long journey by broom to blåkulla (the blue hill) where they will party.

Oroginally, witches were thought to kidnap children and bring the with them to the Blue hill, where they feast and dance woth the devil. Today tho, they are just cute and beg for candy so they can last until Halloween
