Time to send all our Witchy Poo pals a spring wish.

A little FYI - Walpurgis Night is the English translation of Walpurgisnacht. It is the night of April 30th, the eve of Saint Walpurga Day. German folklore also calls it Hexennacht or Witches" Night. It was believed witches met on the highest peak in the Harz mountains to await spring. Celebrations are held with dancing, drinking and bonfires. Walpurgis is 6 months before Halloween so what better way to get us into the Halloween early in the year.

Or are you more of a Beltane person - the Gaelic May Day festival held on 1 May. Special bonfires are kindled, their flames, smoke and ashes were deemed to have protective powers. Beltane is a Wiccan Sabbath Celebrated with bonfires, flowers and drink.


Interested in exchanging cards with witchy minded folks? Need a little Halloween fix? A little magic spell to shake off the winter hum drums? Here's how - Post how many cards you are willing to send out and where you are willing to send them to - US only, US and Canada, Everywhere and Anywhere. Then Private Message your personal info to others who have posted on this thread you want to exchange and wait with baited breath your witchy spells to arrive. Please try to have your cards popped into the mail by April 25 so they arrive in time for Witch Night or May Day.

I can send unlimited to anywhere!

As an amusing side note, I told my clinical supervisor about the various card exchanges as he always asks me what I've been doing for "self care" and lately I seem to be doing a lot of Halloween stuff for cards. He thinks it's great and loves that we have found a way to enjoy our favorite holiday all year 'round. I keep expecting him to turn up here ?

Okay, silly question: Beltane cards or Samhain cards?
Not silly. This is our spring card exchange for Walpurgis ( witch's night which is April 30) - Beltane ( Celtic May Day which is May 1).

We attempt to do card exchanges several times a year. Halloween, Krampus/Christmas, Vampy or Bloody Valentines, Walpurgis/Beltane ( formally known as Rotten Easter Eggs and Red, White and Dead Zombie 4th of July.

Hope you join is.

Thank you for clarifying! I'm techno-challenged, and since adult daughter is asleep, please forgive my stumbling around on the website.
That said, this sounds fun, count me in with 10 cards that can go anywhere on the planet--the further the better!
(At least I remember how to use the postal service!) :eek:

Has anyone heard when the Halloween stamps are actually supposed to come out? The only thing I saw was "details coming soon".
It would be nice if we could have them for this!
Last time it was early September
