"Another Swedish exchange student and I were invited to spend Easter weekend on a Canadian family’s farm.

Not entirely knowing what they were in for, we had the brothers agree to participate. It didn’t take long to have them looking like true Easter Witches, and wondering why they ever invited the Swedes over for Easter. Safe to say they’ll be doing the Easter Witches tradition for years to come in Canada!" — Olivia Dyster-Aas, exchange student at Queen’s University, Canada.
