Video of the day -- Walpurgisnacht

Best wishes on Walpurgisnacht to all who observe the day.  May your will be done and your ends be achieved.

Loves it!
It did give me a little bit of a nighttime Midsomer vibe, though. That movie traumatized me. Also, this made me wanna meet some witches. Totally the opposite St. Walpurga would have wanted.

I didn't understand a word they said, but some good festive music and choice of instruments. It just gives you a good feeling. And not a buch of bloodletting, or even negative imagery. A bumper sticker I see on cars driving around town (Dallas), that I like, is, something like "give me that old time religion", and it has some Pagan Wiccan symbols or something on it, if I can, I usually give them thumbs up with a honk {:-) Probably alot of folks don't even know what "Walpurgisnacht" is, some may even have a hard time pronouncing it at first. Oddly, I have had a Po Box, for at least a quarter century or more, and it is always due for the 6 month payment, on Walpurgisnacht and Halloween ... an NO, I did not plan this, it just came out that way {:-)

Let's all light a bonfire tonight. There are still a lot of evil spirits that we need to ward off.

Sixpence: Yes, unfortunately some film-makers like to use pagan imagery for horror purposes (though the imagery of the Christian blood cult would actually be better suited for that purpose). Everybody wants to be the next Wicker Man. To me, though, the video is just a delightfully innocuous celebration of authentic European culture.

Debra: Cheers!

Ranch: Glad to hear people feel OK driving around Dallas with pagan bumper stickers. I think I read somewhere that there's actually a group in Germany that does rituals like this on Walpurgisnacht, but it's an all-women thing -- no men allowed.

Mike: If I were to light a bonfire, I would definitely need to ward off an evil spirit, specifically my apartment-building manager. I don't know whether a jack-o'-lantern would work.
