Walpurgis Night (Walpurgisnacht) is a traditional spring festival on 30 April or 1 May in large parts of Central and Northern Europe. It is often celebrated with dancing and bonfires. It is exactly six months from All Hallows' Eve....(snip) In Germany, Walpurgisnacht, the night from 30 April to 1 May, is the night when witches are reputed to hold a large celebration on the Brocken and await the arrival of spring.

Sooooo.... is that the Black Sabbath?

And being born on that day is a good thing, right?

Happy birthday to me!

Wonder if I could use that as a holiday to skip work today. ;)

Headed to Darkhour Haunted House this weekend for a celebration of the holiday! This month's show is for Walpurgishnacht! Debating dressing as a witch when I go. I have about a 45 minute drive to get there and it would be my luck to get stopped and sent to the loony bin for being dressed up!!!! LOL

I'm really trying to spark in interest with my family and friends to celebrate Walpurgisnacht (since I have German ancestry) but half don't care because it's new to them and the other half are focused on Cinco de Mayo coming up. My husband is Mexican-American and we always have a big BBQ party.
