Night of the Witches by Llewellyn Publishing

By Linda Raedisch

"Spring has come to the northern forest. The evening wind blows cold as the breath of the frost giants. Just overhead, there is a sound like the rushing of crows' wings. Can it be a coven of witches has flown over these woods?

"On any other night, you would probably swear that there was no such thing as a witch—at least, not the kind that streaks through the sky on a broomstick with guttering taper and billowing cloak. But this is no ordinary night; it is the thirtieth of April, the eve of May. Tonight is Walpurgis Night."

The roots of Walpurgis Night reach deep into the Pagan past, and modern Europeans celebrate it with as much abandon as their ancestors. Learn about brooms and how to make one, and meet a collection of old-time witches, from Ash Wives to Wolf Crones. This charming, impeccably researched book features a wealth of folklore and herb lore, plus original and traditional recipes, crafts, and activities.

Most Celtic Pagans celebrate Beltane on May Day, but few honor the evening before Beltane. Walpurgis Night, historically important to Germanic Pagans, needs to be reintroduced. After you read this book, your April 30th will never be the same!

Night of the Witches is the most complete book about Walpurgis Night ever published. It's loaded with the history and lore of the festival, including how it has changed from a fertility festival to a children's night of fun and treats. Included is information on goddesses, herbal lore, and numerous delicious recipes from Finland, Sweden, the Czech Republic, Germany, and more. You'll discover the Old World Witches, broomstick lore, the Ash Wife and the Wolf Crone, and even the secrets of the Christian saint Walburga.

Included are guides for activities including how to celebrate the evening with children, games to play, and crafts such as costuming, toothpick Futhark, Witch boxes, and more.
