If anyone wonders why the witch features in the greeting card, according to Swedish tradition witches fly to Blåkulla to celebrate easter.

This tale is so widespread that many who have heard it are not aware that Blåkulla is a real location.

I Jesu namn till bords vi gå,
välsigna Gud den mat vi få
