Anyone read Faust?

"Walpurgis Night (Walpurgisnacht) is a traditional spring festival on 30 April or 1 May in large parts of Central and Northern Europe. It is often celebrated with dancing and with bonfires. It is exactly six months from All Hallows' Eve."

Bram Stoker wrote a short story, original first chapter to Dracula, set that night. It was called Dracula's guest. Not a bad little tale.

Would love to make it to the Brocken in the Harz for Walpurgisnacht sometime.
Good climbing there too.
Sorry could not find much in English.

Always dug Greg Child's use of the expression when describing some epic escape he had from Nameless Tower
