Walpurgis Night

Tonight is the Walpurgis Night. Tonight is celebrated old pagan Goddess of Spring - She takes over the World and Winter is expelled. Women are restoring Their magic powers, powers ensuring fertility and love to all mankind.
Catholic church named the night after an english missionary Saint Walpurga from 8th century. She gained the reputation to protect from evil ghost and the church decided to make Her the patron of the night.
There cannot be better illustrations for tonight than paintings of Luis Ricardo Falero (1851-1896), a Spanish artist, specialized in celebration of Women beauty, power and magic.
