Trivia

  • Walpurgis is inspired by the Germanic Christian feast day of Saint Walpurga, with the night before said feast being known as Walpurgis Night. This holiday lasts from April 30th to May 1st and consists of the lighting of bonfires to ward off evil spirits and witches and a feast commemorating the canonization of Saint Walpurga and the movement of her relics to Eichstätt on May 1st, 870. Saint Walpurga was known for fighting against pests, rabies, and whooping cough and for protecting Christians from witchcraft, converting many Germans to Christianity in the process.
