Oxford Brooms are for Superheroes. ;) [Dec. 24th, 2007|12:02 am]

In Norway on Christmas Eve, all the brooms in the house are hidden because long ago it was believed that witches
and mischievous spirits came out on Christmas Eve and would steal their brooms for riding.

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe holiday season. Blessings on you and your loved ones. :)

FIRST AT LAST!

I wonder why witches would pick Christmas Eve to steal brooms?

Haha, that's an awesome fact. And that's sort of the best blooper I've ever seen.

Your icon makes me happy!

Are we sure that they didn't just have the Quidditch World Cup?

Norway is fun. Its one of my favorite places I've visited. Didn't know about their weird broom hiding tradition though. Interesting.

Scandinavia's quite strange about witches in general. I was staying with a family in Denmark for a little while and they brought me to a "witch burning" where they had dressed up this doll, and set her on fire, so that she could bring with her all of the evil spirits in Denmark... the host family joked they were sending them to Finland. lol.

They also told me that each time a Danish person goes to Finland the overall intelligence goes up in both countries.

lol. ;)

Anywho, it was bizarre as could be, but fascinating, i thought.
