Bitchy Witchy

Happy Halloween!

During the witch hunts in Europe each country had their own witch lore.

In Norway and Sweden they were what you would expect. Women who did magic and could fly using anything from broomsticks to their husbands.

In Denmark however witches weren't believed to have the power to fly. Their favorite transportation was a horse at night.

And in Iceland and Finland performing magic was seen as a male thing, so Christians had a hard time convincing the natives witches were women. Instead men got burned and only one or two women were killed.

finland has a distinct lack of knives, booze, and perkele in this comic.

fact: the last witch hunt in Denmark happened in 1936 (yep....) on a little island named Ærø. But he was not convicted in the case. That island is fuck'd btw

Still can't help but compare these to Hetalia. Finland in this version seems more accurately badass to me, but whatever.

Its these comic strips that make me question why the one with the balls is more popular
