“The most fertile lands were built by the fires of volcanoes.”
Samhain isn’t the only night when the supernatural rules. There’s a penetrating chill in the wind. The bright moon rises behind the shivering, nearly naked trees. A profound sense of foreboding permeates the darkness. This is the night, after all, when witches ride their broomsticks through the sky, and the natural world is forced to confront the powers of the supernatural.
No, it isn’t October 31 and this is not Halloween. It’s Walpurgis Night.
Like Samhain, Walpurgis has its roots in ancient pagan customs, superstitions and festivals. At this time of year, the Vikings 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.
We’ll meet at 5pm and socialize and build frith, then eat around 5:30pm, with ritual at 6:15pm or 6:30pm. Mead and main meal provided by Northern Wisdom Kindred of Utah.
Please bring a food, food you’ve made holds your energy and we’d love to share that with you. Bring a chair to sit on and a sweater or jacket, this is spring in Utah!
