So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of weird vintage Easter cards from the olden days. Enjoy.

  1. Witches on Easter?
1acbf8776f80feaf5de9b33707f3c458

Okay, this is a tradition from Scandinavia. Yet most Americans would think the designer got confused with Halloween.

2. Let the frogs open the gate for the beetles.

2e6ca7d1c56c8911cd9dfc2788050f9b

Okay, I’m kind of confused at this. Besides, don’t frogs eat bugs like that. What the hell is going on here?

3. Celebrate Easter with a band of witches?

3cf18035e025e5e3fb64a5315ff2b96d

Again, this is from Scandinavia. Yet, why they started a band with household implements and have cats on vocals is beyond me.

4. Nothing makes Easter worth celebrating like a beetle party.

5afd000c2928e04ba52f9d0f3a34d70f

Here we have beetles dancing in the forest. And yes, the females even wear dresses. Seems to be from a bad acid trip.

5. Best wishes for a joyful Easter from a couple of parakeets.

6aefb73916b48fe0899153ffa38eb4f0

What the hell? Parakeets? Seriously, what do they have to do with Easter besides absolutely nothing.

6. Happy Easter from a chick on skis.

6bd1e118e5ae8678e7ea337cca58fa6a

This is from Russia. Apparently, it still snows there during the Easter season. Yet, the chick still carry flowers on an eggshell on its back.

7. In the future, women will fly in their Easter hats.

6daea9efd8b82a7670ef26116d409775

Well, that hasn’t happened. But if you see what Easter bonnets look like, you get the idea.

8. Here we have a chick carrying flowers.

8cc5f3b47a7c1a6fabf8e27ae8595b0f

And this little chick doesn’t seem to like the job. Since they’d have to use a yoke on their backs and carry the flowers in eggshells.

9. Beetle with flowers wishes you a joyful Easter.

8d2e5e29df20b132eaa998dcd4761db7

I don’t get what this beetle has to do with Easter. Because they sure don’t have anything to do with the holiday in America.

10. Even a modern witch needs to fly on Easter.

8fed87aa911d55978810116a971c4b2e

I know the moon is confused as much as anyone. But take it from me, this is a tradition in Scandinavia.

11. How about a pretty witch handing out eggs from her basket?

9beea5b3796dad6b646e9261aedb71ce

This one is from the US since it’s in the English language. Still, you have to wonder why she hasn’t yet gotten out of her river dance outfit. Saint Patrick’s Day’s probably over by then.

12. Happy Easter from the frog walking his beetle.

21f93033e79ccdbab1047e3fd6bd4b2a

This is messed up. Seriously, frogs probably eat beetles, not keep them as pets. Also uses a toadstool as an umbrella.

13. This Easter be happy to have beetles living in your flowers.

44e3f07b4238d65dc81141560cf7ab65

Actually, having beetles in your bouquet will freak out everyone. Seriously, what the hell?

14. How about a beetle carrying a young girl in a basket?

52d3bc754b81a6a1ee88061c72a9ccd9

And she’s not to be messed with from her expression. Still, this seems more or less appropriate for a weird sci-fi or horror movie than an Easter card.

15. Happy Easter from an Alpine bunny.

62cbd36c875d667c1d0bfba3ef2e7a24

Yes, she seems like she’s straight out of The Sound of Music. Wonder how she plays the zither with her paws. Maybe I don’t want to know.

16. Happy Easter from the hardboiled egg family.

73db8c896656b5c8a62288a831614817

Even their dog’s made out of eggs. Don’t ask me to explain why the designer thought this would make a good Easter card.

17. Heard of an egghead? She has an egg body.

74f219ccd0d85b56535eafdcdf0e61ef

Okay, that’s just freaky. But at least her apron has pockets.

18. Out of this egg comes a whole bunch of chicks.

87be7b7c520c271cbe360c3bead50ab4

That’s not how the amniotic egg works. Seriously, a bunch of chicks don’t hatch from a single egg. That’s contrary to chicken biology.

19. Ladies and Gentlemen, the Beetles.

94e2f89aac7530106241b8c90f944ef3

No, not the Beatles. I mean a band with beetles. But they seem good enough that a couple of beetles dance.

20. Easter greetings from a pipe smoking chick.

095bfc410b17e1139274ac4bcc6a7453

His pipe is long enough so he could smoke from it on the window sill. As he admires the blue spring flowers.

21. Even chicks have their limits.

118f75f61c024a39cea1acd2e9c19237

2 guy chicks hit on a girl chick on the roller skating grounds. And she’s not having it. Wonder if she’s heard of Me Too. Probably not.

22. Let’s leave these beetles to themselves.

1996e1b1e81eee79306f381a68ff880a

I don’t get what beetles have to do with Easter. Yet, they’re sharing an intimate moment under an umbrella.

23. Happy Easter from Easter eggs playing cards.

4622bc5b445c276308d7f61d63d59481

Seriously, what the hell is going on here? Guess the egg who loses the most money has to sit on a wall. Also, do the flowers have eyes? And are they actually watching them?

24. “Easter joy be yours.”

5604d209fa40848ac371edc458226576

This is basically the literal definition of “flower child.” And it’s really freaky. Seriously, why?

25. A Happy Easter from the pink flower children.

42154a7cccdb20cef13ab78dd1d1e042

Yes, this flower children thing wasn’t just confined to Alice in Wonderland. And yes, it makes you wonder if you’re on an acid trip.

26. Care to go places in an egg cart?

an-egg-ride-624x412

And apparently, it’s pulled by a mother hen and her chicks. I’m sure you won’t go far in that.

27. “Sorry I’m late to the coven.”

b4e1a21fa5fa7dcaa92d14511f043841

And it appears one of the witches brought something. While devils do a dance in the background. Seriously, how is this an Easter card?

28. Happy Easter from the frog family.

b960dec1697765bc544a2a723bcfabe0

Frogs don’t have families like that. Seriously, they lay their eggs in water, which hatch into tadpoles. Also, what do frogs have to do with Easter?

29. Happy Easter from the kid hatched from an egg.

born-from-an-egg-624x966

No, that’s not how people reproduce. And no, they don’t come out like they’re 3 years old.

30. Happy Easter from the flying chicken.

1953  Eliasson  Pieni kortti,

Okay, this is from Scandinavia. And yes, the hen’s a bit insecure on how her chicks are holding onto the broomstick.

31. Happy Easter from the bunny riding a sheep.

c71cbc6c27445eb3b3ec57c2084f09a7

Bunny is frustrated over the lamb’s stubbornness. Lamb doesn’t want to visit the rickety old mill because they think it’s dangerous.

32. “So we’re the first ones to hatch?”

d4bfc418403490f64d0994c505829cc7

You can see the weird look in that chick’s eye. As they wonder what the hell they’re doing in an Easter basket instead of a chicken coop.

33. Easter Greetings from a distinguished gentleman chick.

d09e04aa605ed6b470472634dc653f25

Is this how chicks in Downton Abbey hatch. Do they come equipped with pince nezes, top hats and canes? Asking for a friend.

34. Nowadays Easter witches take to the road.

easterwitch_automobiles

You can see them go over the speed limit in Scandinavia. And yes, the cat’s freaking out. Also, the torches at the front pose a severe safety risk.

35. “All hail the steaming kettle.”

easterwitch_coffeemountain

Not sure what the kettle has to do with Easter. But I sure don’t want my broomstick near it.

36. Today, modern witches travel the skies in planes.

easterwitch_finnish_airplane_ebay

You can see the plane’s basically egg-shaped so the witch can put her feet up. While the cat secretly prays for a safe landing.

37. A witch always needs to look her best for Easter.

easterwitch_finnishbeauty_ebay

Yet, the cats appear to jump off the broomstick. Because they don’t want to be near it when she’s handling it.

38. This Easter, the witches ride on their familiars.

easterwitch_goatcatriding_onfaith

One rides on a giant cat she probably enchanted. The other dresses in style and goes on a big horn sheep.

39. “Hey, don’t touch my broomstick!”

easterwitch_holdingbroom_curtnystrom_ebay

Yeah, Easter witches don’t take that kind of shit. Guess someone’s going be toad.

40. Didn’t know witches flew by day.

easterwitch_kids

In Harry Potter they do. Yet, these kids are baffled by the daytime spectacle. Also, why is the moon out during daylight hours?

41. Just a little break for tea.

easterwitch_saucer

Sure she’s not drinking alcohol. Nonetheless, it’s a case of distracted driving that you don’t wonder why the cat’s clinging to dear life.

42. Watch out for that church steeple.

easterwitch_turretcrash_ebay

Yeah, when you’re flying at a high altitude, you probably run into a lot of tall structures. Wonder what she does to get any help.

43. This hen carries her Easter eggs in her apron.

eec345932fa9284bb2872825a4bacbcc

This looks like an accident waiting to happen. Just wait when she’s tripped and all the eggs come crashing down.

44. Happy Easter from the daffodil children.

fe8cfb36863b914eb5f6a5ea43b0d342

Am I the only one to think this as freaky? Seriously, why?

45. “We Easter witches must stick together.”

ff2eac319152df31b46a825d7c5c1641--sweden-holidays-easter-lunch

Uh, can’t they just fly up the mountain? Seriously, they have brooms for that. Or did their brooms run out of magic power?

46. Happy Easter from the egg with a man’s face.

salad-clipart-vintage-752026-8730507

Okay, this is really freaky. Since when do eggs have mustaches, faces, and pince-nezes? Even the gnomes are stupefied.

47. Apparently, 2 girls can fit inside an egg.

two-for-one

Wonder how this is possible. Oh, yes, the egg’s just gigantic. Still, it boggles my mind.

48. “Now you all be good when I’m out. Okay?”

vintage-easter-cards-victorian-gifted_1_43634cda8e3fa3b07f66e1bd46b257f5

Not sure about the dynamic. Since chicks are baby chickens. Also, the egg home has a chimney and ladder.

49. Easter witches even fly on a rainy day.

4cb9ce873aff5815a4381d77cb1f0603

Since she’s got her umbrella with her. Yet, the cat’s still uneasy on the broomstick.

50. How about a joy ride over the chicken coop?

e326a3ff122e73a3faf51eee4347807f

The old man’s kind of like, “What the hell’s going on?” But the witch on her broomstick doesn’t give a damn.
