Witch Burn

“Let’s celebrate that we don’t burn women anymore.”

“Sure. How should we do that?”

“Let’s burn a woman.”

“What?! No! That’s a horrible way.”

“Oh. Okay. Then let’s burn a doll.”


A/N: Another odd, Danish tradition.

  1. Actually, we can find this tradition in many cultures. In some cases it was a way to get rid of evil spirits. After a certain ritual spirit occupies a doll, doll is burned (or teared apart), spirit leaves to the land of dead. Everyone is happy 🙂
