Walpurgis Eve at Skansen

Walpurgis Eve at Skansen

On Walpurgis eve, April 30, Swedes welcome spring by lighting huge bonfires and celebrate the end of a long and dreary winter by singing Spring songs. These songs were spread by the students' spring festivities and Walpurgis Night celebrations are especially festive in university towns.
