Eleanor, Beth Siveyer, and Arvida Byström were inspired by the Swedish tradition of Easter witches, when young girls put on their mothers’ silk scarves, recycled sheets, or old dresses and exchange feathers, flowers, and handmade cards bearing the slogan “Glad Påsk!” (Happy Easter!) in return for candy.
