Walpurgis Night refers to a pagan feast also called Witches’ Night. It is named after Saint Walpurga, an 8th century female English missionary who converted the then pagan Germans to Christianity. The first mentions of Walpurgis Night date back to the 17th century. Nowadays Walpurgis Night is still celebrated on April 30th in Scandinavia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, the Netherlands & Whelan’s. It is exactly six months away from that other feast celebrating ghosts, unearthly creatures and giant floating minions.

“This was Walpurgis Night! Walpurgis Night, when, according to the belief of millions of people, the devil was abroad – when the graves were opened and the dead came forth and walked. When all evil things of earth and air and water held revel. This very place the driver had specially shunned. This was the depopulated village of centuries ago. This was where the suicide lay; and this was the place where I was, alone – unmanned, shivering with cold in a shroud of snow with a wild storm gathering again upon me! It took all my philosophy, all the religion I had been taught, all my courage, not to collapse in a paroxysm of fright.” ―from “Dracula’s Guest” by Bram Stoker
