Traditional entrance in Araotz (Gipuzkoa) [x]
The dry flower on the door is called eguzkilore (carlina acaulis), our national flower. It's believed it has protective powers against bad spirits that always come out at night; in Basque tradition they aren't allowed to see the sun, and have a pathological need to count almost uncountable things. So when evil spirits come to a door and see the eguzkilore, they're fascinated by its resemblance to the sun, and then they start counting the thorns. They're so many that morning comes and they have to hide again, without having entered the house.
You'll see this flower on many doors throughout EH and Arag贸n - where is known as cardincha - so it's clearly a Pyreneean tradition.

In the world of language or, what is much the same, the world of art and culture, religion necessarily assumes the guise of a mythology or a bible.

We usually have it during summer holidays, events, or graduation parties, or parties with lots of people; like an after-work thing or a celebratory success.
And you can be really creative with how they look, too!
We've had it since the early 1800th, but it only became a common-folk thing during the 1950s.
And to be fair, Sweden did a lot of strange things with food during the 50s- Like putting liver paste in jelly and put toothpicks with olives into it. So, if you think about it, shrimp on cake really isn't that strange.
And it's more of a... Really big sandwich. Shaped like a cake. With ham, shrimp and cheese.
Look, we just really like seafood in this country.
