WALPURGISNACHT / BELTANE

Two days until …

VALBORG / WALPURGISNACHT / BELTANE.

Most Ásatrúar celebrate 30 April as either Walpurgisnacht (German) or Valborg (Swedish).

My Wiccan friends celebrate the date as Beltane (Irish/Scottish).  They have a different idea , or concept,  religion-wise but the basic idea is the same.

This is one of two nights in the year (the other being 31 October), that the separation between the world of the living and the world of the dead is at it’s thinnest.   This night celebrates the end of winter/death and the beginning of spring or summer/new birth.

I found this to explain the Wiccan view.
