It's literally "Walpurga's' Night". Referring to Saint Walpurga who brought Christianity to Bavaria-- and who protects against plague and witches.

On her feast-- Walpurgisnacht-- they have bonfires to keep the witches and evil spirits away. Her relics are in the town that had the last witch trial in modern times, Eichstaett*.

There are identical things in other parts of Europe. Like in the North it is St. John's Eve.

People like burning shit.

[i]*that might be wrong. there might have been trials in Europe after Eichstaett.[/i]

[@479586,DlPSHIT] It's a city between Muenchen and Nuremberg.

[@482591,CopperCicada] Bah, München sucks!
I know why I don't know it though, it moved from being in the superior district of Franken to the loser district that is Oberbayern!

I don't know anything outside of Franken.
