Valborgsmässoafton

Valborgsmässoafton is something people celebrate in Sweden, usually the night of April 30.
In English it is called Walpurgis Night.
It's the celebration of the coming Summer and large bonfires burn throughout the night while crowds of people gather around them. This is a very old, pagan tradition. Hundreds of years old. Back in the day people also believed that the witches flew on their brooms to Blåkulla on this night. Blåkulla was a place where the witches would gather and meet up with the Devil. Pretty interesting.
Tatiana remembers Valborgsmässoafton from her childhood, always an exciting night.
So to honor the tradition, she had her own little fire tonight.
