Happy St. Walpurgis Nacht

OR Happy May 1st Eve – What?! Oh yes, let me tell you about another treasure excursion that Susan and I had last week. I first heard about Walpurgis Night years ago when I read Bram Stoker’s excellent book ‘Dracula’ - The book that started the whole Vampire myth in Western Europe. Everyone knows all about that so no need in rehashing the legends and so on BUT early in the novel when a mysterious coachman takes Jonathan Harker, our brave lawyer on his way to get some legal documents signed, to Count Dracula’s castle something mysterious happens. Jonathan notices that the coach stops several times and the coachman jumps down, runs toward a strange green light and leaves a marker. Over a late dinner Dracula explains that the lights were traces of evil spirits out on Walpurgis Night that were drawn to hidden treasure.
