Today’s post will be dedicated to one of the creepiest things I have come across in Austria so far: the disturbing Osterlamm (Easter Lamb). It’s not for the faint hearted, so read on at your own risk.
The lamb is probably one of the most popular Easter symbols throughout the world. But really… what is this meant to be?
Is it meant to scare people into fasting or something? The first time I saw it I literally backed away in fright. Then of course I went closer, with anxious curiosity, to find out exactly what this thing was.
In Austria, they literally have hundreds of these weird lambs stacked up in supermarkets, and I guess people buy them and what…? Eat them? *shudder* I’ve learnt to give them a wide berth around Easter… otherwise I’m pretty sure I would start having odd, semi-lucid dreams about them.
In fact, I can’t definitively say that I haven’t had one… perhaps even just the other day when I woke up in a cold sweat…
Someone send me a Cadbury Creme Egg to make me feel better!
