Is that the Easter Bunny trying to thumb a lift with Virpominen?
Yes, that's the Easer Bunny (we kinda combined the hiding of the chocolate eggs, and doing virpominen rounds ), but he's trying to take a lift from a trulli or witch. Virpominen is the activity, of going door to door and saying the rhyme and exchange the pussy willow and it's good luck for a payment of chocolate
It sounds like a cool tradition!
"We’ve thought of life by analogy with a journey, with pilgrimage which had a serious purpose at the end, and the THING was to get to that end; success, or whatever it is, or maybe heaven after you’re dead. But, we missed the point the whole way along; It was a musical thing and you were supposed to sing, or dance, while the music was being played.
