    Walpurgis and 1. of May 2010

    Have you planned something special for the night of Walpurgis and the following 1. of may (or May-Day) this year?

    Many adherents of heathen faith meet up at places like the Externsteine here in Germany. Most of them are one-world one-love new age weirdos with no real understanding of what they deal with.
    But this is a generalisation and of course there are exceptions.

    Are there comparable cult-places that are nowadays visited by heathen folks in your area or country?

    Unfortunately, I´m working night both today and tomorrow. I´ll probably just celebrate a little on my own, let down my hair and go for a long walk in the bright swedish spring night after I come off work.

    I don´t belong to any religion, and the only celebration going on around here are ordinary folks barbecuing and getting drunk. Well, could have been worse. In Norway nobody gives a rat´s ass about Valborgsnatt... (Other that those belonging to occult/new age/heathen groupings.)

    Walburgas Nacht.........

    We celebrated Walburgas Nacht at our Horg/Cairn, out on the Hill, under stormy skies, with Toasts of Mead & Ale to the Ancestral Gods and Goddesses of the Season, Woden, Holle, Walburga and Freyja. A few dear Friends came over to share the celebration and Feast with us. The winds whipped the trees around. But the rain and lightning held off until later. We could see the lightning in the distance.
    It was a nice evening.

    I visited the Externsteine in the night of Walpurgis with some friends.
    It was my first time there at a holyday, and i especially wanted to see how the situation there is with hippies and the like.

    The percentage of foreigners was small, as i expected.
    The only one that i kept in mind was some Rastafari with his Djembé who drove the attention on himself with his primitive-animalistic behavior. (Not that the major part of the Hippies behaved much less primitive.)

    Alcohol was strictly forbidden on the Externsteine-area (i had no problem with that) - but everywhere was security personnel.
    But not just security personnel, there were SO many police-man just standing around and ruining the atmosphere.
