Walpurgis Night


Walpurgis Night (30 April, annually) is a modern-day European and Scandinavian festival derived from the merging of the ancient pagan celebration of Beltane with the commemoration of the canonization of the Christian Saint Walpurga (l. c. 710 - c. 777). The event focuses on renewal, rebirth, and letting go of dark energies from the past year.
