In times of Corona you are not allowed to dance into May in big groups, of course. This year everything is a little different. We want to tell you how you can still follow this beautiful tradition. But first, let's take a look at where the custom actually comes from:
The night from April 30 to May 01 is Walpurgis Night. Originally, this was a pagan spring festival. By all sorts of measures, such as abundant noise, roar of pipes, drums and shooting the evil spirits of darkness should be driven away. It was later reinterpreted by Christianity as a night of witches and druids led by the devil.
