There is a story going around where I grew up that a family (50 years ago) was terrorized by their grandmother. She refused to let go of her daughter, she hated the guy the daughter married. They had 3 kids. The old ladyhated them aswell. She wanted her daughter back, away from the others.  She called them about 20 times a day. Walking around their house at night, etc...

One day she even tried to get one of the kids out of kindergarden, God knows why..... but the teachers knew about the whole situation and refused, she then slapped 3-4 kids and the teacher in the mouth.

That same night the old lady tried to break into their house.

The mother in the family (the old ladys daughter) thought it was a thief and killed her, blasted her in the face with a shotgun.


She was so shocked when she saw who it was that she whent to the kids bedroom and and threw the dead grandmother on the floor infront of the screaming kids. She screamed at them that it was their fault, that she hated them all, slapped them all in the face and ran out of the house.

This family, the dad and 3 kids, never saw her again.


The legend -- Every May 14th -- Grandmothers all over town is allowed to slap their grandkids in the face, as hard as they want.

And they do.

Ooh, that is a harsh tradition.  So when can the kids slap back?

There is so much slapping in the original legend that it's like a Three Stooges episode

This is a small town in the south of Sweden.... I can even remember back in the days when my friends grandmother hit him so hard (he was about 12) he cried like a little girl and even threw up.... from the humiliation, I guess.

The parents just laughed. I have no idea what happened to him later in life. Nothing good I imagine.

My grandmother slapped us as a joke, like most grandmothers.... didnt hurt one bit. ^_^

That is twisted. Poor kids in for a rude awakening if they never knew about the legend and then get slapped hard across the face by their elders.

Most kids know about the legend, its like a ghost story type of deal around here. Its just that some old women is using it to really punish the grandkids they dont like.

Some get a gentle tap on the cheek and a smile, and the one after that gets a nasty SMACK on the side of the scull.

Hmm..can't imagine anyone thinking that slapping anyone is a joke. Certainly isn't to the recipient.

Anyways that is a new legend. Don't think I ever heard it. Kinda weird.

I must say that I have never heard of this one either, and I live in Sweden, in the northern parts. Maybe its a local phenomenon?

I wonder why the police arent doing anything about this "tradition",... could it be that they are afraid of their Grandmothers? :unsure2:

I still await the compelling Exhibit A.

Is it supposed to imply that the dead grandmother possessed her daughter?

Funny thing with traditions, if it's tradition lots of time it wont be stopped even if it's illegal. Here there is a tradition of people, thousands of them, riding their bikes throughout the city naked. It started with some college pranksters and every year a few more would join in and now it's tradition and the police haven't tried to stop them, instead they help direct traffic around them and make sure they are safe. Here in the US public nudity is illegal outside of specified nudist locations but yet this is aloud once a year all because of tradition.

Turtle Power!
