Lifecruisers Walpurgis fireworks

Tonight is Walpurgis Night (Valborgsmässoafton). It’s when the spring season is welcomed by us Swedes.

We celebrate it with bonfires, choir singing about the spring and fireworks. The festivities goes on over the whole country.

Though moder nature very often has surprises for us this day with really cold weather and it has even been snowing on Walpurgis for many years…

It’s like King Bore (the winter) must have a last blast before he goes to rest ;-)

But not this year, so it’s a good start of the spring and summer.

Happy Walpurgis!

    Different organisations are arranging bonfires in different locations every where, so I guess we’ll pick some close to us :-)

    Well, of course, at second thought, as we are as we are, maybe we’ll have one, different – like the picture shows ;-)

    Walpurgis supposedly is one of the patron saints of Antwerp, but I see very few bonfires from my window.

    I know, though, how you would look forward to the longer days and the agreeable weather. I’m an autum person, but too much coldness and darkness can do funny things to your system. Enjoy!
