    Swiety Mikolaj – try saying it as “c-ve-thee mee-kou-ay”
    have a great Holidays, :)

    Loved this! Particularly intrigued by the Ukrainian story. When my son was little (1980) I found a beautiful book about a woman who lived in the woods, and her tree was decorated by a kindly spider. I bought multiple copies for gifts and inadvertently gave my last copy away. I’ve been searching for it for years. Anyone have any leads?

    I’m a Norwegian who’s never heard of this wacky tradition of hiding brooms from witches before… And I can’t seem to find any references of this from any Norwegian sources either… If anything they would actually put them out in front of the barn in order for any witches to fly away instead of going inside to bother the animals… but even this one is not particularly widespread across the country… makes you think about all the other weird things we read about on the Internet ;) Anyone knows of any legit local sources of this story?

  4. Kenneth:

    Where did the witches in Norway come from? After 24 years I still had never heard of them before Moo found them, I’m a bad norwegian :-( Maybe it is because neither my mother or my grandma have a broom (at least the old fashioned witch type one) at home :p

    Merry Christmas :D
