    All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain.

    You are doing something, and its important too. You are debating on what to do.

    I was trying to be all enthusiastic.

    We kinda have two seasons.

    Season 1 - really hot - lots of rain/thunderstorms
    Season 2 - not so hot - not much rain

    My pagan group is celebrating the begin of summer next sunday, at the second full moon after the spring equinox. This makes Midsummer really mid summer.

    But the flower moon is officially full on Saturday (unless I'm way off on my time zone estimate). Or do you mean a midnight Sat/Sun celebration?

    Misconception.

    Walpurgis is just the catholicized version of Beltaine, the sister holiday to Samhain/Halloween. Where Samhain marks end of the mortal season and the beginning of the season for the witches/netherworld, Beltaine marks the reverse transition to where it is safe to once again work the fields.

    I'm aware of this. I was just responding to Zoids "Spring is here".

    And I was as much informing him as responding to you.

    Most of those neo-pagan holidays are interconnected anyway.
