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!

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.

not your typical...

Don't you disrespect my faith in the Great Pumpkin! He will appear in 2012, Harold Camping said so!
LOL! Love the HC reference. That man has lost so much credit over the years, but for some reason there are still idiots out there who believe him.
