Welcome to another edition of our monthly newsletter.
Easter is nearly here and it's time to enjoy Candy, Candy and more Candy! But for us Scandinavians Easter also includes Herring, Snaps and Påskmust.
In this newsletter we have:
- Easter Egg Hunt!
- Short Date Sales
- This Months Featured Product
Are all you Easter Witches ready? 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. In Finland, if you answer the door on the Sunday before Easter, you may be confronted by endearing little witches offering to bless your home in return for treats.“A twig for you, a treat for me!”
A traditional Scandinavian Easter lunch is likely to consist of different varieties of pickled herring, cured salmon, Jansson’s Temptation (potato, onion and pickled anchovies baked in cream) and Eggs with Caviar. The table is often laid like a traditional smörgåsbord . Spiced schnapps is also a feature of the Easter buffet table. Unlike the food we eat for Christmas, Easter food is much lighter and almost always includes marzipan and candy-filled Easter eggs for dessert
