In Sweden we usually celebrate tonight with bonfires and spring songs.

But nothing this year, due to the pandemic.

Not exactly a bonfire, but these are the traditional songs associated with Valborg (Walpurgis)

In my area Walpurgisnacht is normally celebrated with parties, pranks and jokes of all kinds. Sometimes our cars have gotten egged or TP-ed on Walpurgisnacht.

This year a group of people had a great idea: the morning after Walpurgisnacht, town signs in the area were mixed up! Village A was suddenly named B, B was named C and so on.  :laugh: O0

So you moved to a new village without all the trouble of packing?  ;D
