Swedish Easter Tradition of Feathers

In Sweden we decorate twigs of birch with feathers for Easter. We usually put this “påskris” indoors, in a vase, but outdoors is seen too, and some people even decorate trees in the garden. I do. There is nothing else to cheer up the garden this time of year.

Not only feathers liven up the twigs; eggs are popular too, as are chickens.
