On Palm Sunday children around Finland dress up as little witches and equip themselves with willow branches decorated with colourful feathers and crepe paper. The little witches tour the neighbourhood, knock on doors and recite an old poem that promises health and youthfulness for the coming year and asks for a reward. Whoever opens the door gets one of the decorated willow branches as a gift and the reward is usually a chocolate egg or other seasonal sweets.
Here is what the little witches recite:
vitsa sullepalkka mulle!
For fresh, for health
for the coming year!
The branch for you,
the treat for me!
Have a Peaceful Easter.
Hope all our friends And Family have a happy Palm Sunday And Easter!
