Spring is here!

 

You're celebrating the begin of spring at Walpurgis, and at the summer solstice already Midsummer? When does summer begin then? ;)

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".
