Valborg - Celebrate with a Lovely Fire
Submitted by Pam on Mon, 04/30/2012 - 20:11
Valborg or Walpurgis Night! April 30th.
Time to say goodbye to winter and welcome spring.
Sasha shares two posts on Squashed Tomatoes so you can see first hand how this night is celebrated in Sweden.
Just ten days ago I planted sweet peas at the base of each tripod support in Margit's Mid-summer Well in the hope they would pop through the soil in time to welcome Valborg! And they did!
This evening, since we have no community bonfires planned in Vancouver and we are not allowed to light bonfires on the property, I will float a few lit candles in Brigid's pond. And a toast to the arrival of spring!
But I don't mind telling you that after these past days of cold rain I am ready to burn away winter with a giant bonfire!
