Valborg

fire

I went to my dads house with the kids to celebrate Valborg – or Walpurgis night as it supposedly called abroad. But when reading the wiki it was all semi news to me – I mean the old religious tradition about burning witches and so on. The common thing in Sweden nowadays is that April 30th graduating students put on their graduating caps, sing to celebrate spring and get shit faced. All over Sweden people are doing huge fires somehow to celebrate the new, spring and burn the old and having some kind of fun!
