If you come to Sweden during Easter, happiness will be with you wherever you go. It's a joyful feast for everyone.

Easter ornaments define Easter

Food, candy, and Easter ornaments define the bright colors of Easter. After a long winter, every Swede hopes to welcome spring in the most passionate way possible, leading to the liveliness of Easter. The table will be filled with traditional Easter foods such as eggs, herring, salmon, and lamb, with many vegetarian alternatives in recent years. Candy is also a must-have, especially the personally selected candy gift packs - sweet happiness bombs.

The history of celebrating Easter in Sweden can be traced back to 1844. Since the 1970s, Easter has had a strong religious atmosphere. In recent decades, Easter in Sweden has become more secular, blending Christian, Swedish folk and ancient Nordic cultures to form a unique celebration. The complete Easter celebration starts from Maundy Thursday and lasts until Easter Monday, with Holy Saturday, the eve of Easter, being the most important day.

The weirdest Easter tradition in Sweden is the "Easter witches". Children dressed as "witches" will walk in groups on the streets, knocking on doors to wish residents a happy Easter and exchanging candy for their homemade paintings or Easter cards.

Bright Easter ornaments

The beauty of Easter lies not only in food but also in those bright colorful ornaments. The most popular Easter ornament in families is the Easter colored branches (the Easter version of Christmas trees) - elegant birch branches decorated with colorful feathers and some spring-colored ornaments, such as small yellow birds.

Egg painting is the favorite activity for children. They use watercolor pens or markers to display their unlimited creativity on the eggshells. Another tip is to wrap uncooked eggs in onion skin, secure with foil before boiling, and the eggs will present exquisite marble patterns in different rust and light brown colors. These colored eggs often take center stage on the Easter table, piled up into a small mountain. As for the aesthetics of the Easter table - tablecloths and napkins are usually bright yellow or green, representing the endless vitality of spring!
