Today's Spell:
Although Beltane is often said to be tomorrow, Beltane celebrations traditionally begin tonight—an evening also known as Walpurgis Night. Walpurga is an ancient Teutonic grain goddess who was honored on this day. Later, a Saint Walpurga appeared in Germany, and her feast day fell on May 1st.
