Walpurgis Night is a spring festival in Europe celebrated in the night of April 30th. By day we put up the maytree (pic below) and at night we go out and “dance into May”. There’s bonfires and partying, and kids walk around town and TP everything in sight. Which is why people hide their bikes and garden gnomes and everything.
Walpurgis Night is also the night that witches and the devil are said to party on the Brocken (a mountain in Germany).
Now let’s party and greet spring!!
