What holiday am I celebrating today?

April 30, 2012

Walpurgis Night, the eve of May Day.  The holiday has its roots in early fertility festivals . . . some ties to witches, again fertility festivals . . . mostly celebrated in Scandinavia and northern Europe.  There is a lot written about St. Walpurgis and the origin of the holiday – just Google it.  My take – it features a bonfire and sparkling drink, so I’m there.
