Wind is chilly, sun shines & people wear a smile in their faces... so nice. The night of April 30 is the year’s other halloween.
Other European countries call this as other hallowen. Witches, moonlight, chilly night, bonfire, superstitions & festivities, spell & magic. Well, it is a WALPURGIS NIGHT! This is like halloween though and has it's root from an ancient days.
"Scandinavians participated in a ritual that they hoped would hasten the arrival of spring weather and ensure fertility for their crops and livestock. They would light huge bonfires in hopes of scaring away evil spirits".
Well, nowadays, we're talking PARTY! lots of alcohol. Drink till you drop!

May bustles in on windy feet
And sweeps my doorstep and my street.
I washes and cleans with pounding rains,
Scrubbing the earth of winter stains.
I shakes the grime from carpet green
Till naught but fresh new blades are seen.
Then, house in order, all neat as a pin,
I do ushers gentle springtime in.
