If this question seems ignorant to anyone, my sincerest appologies. That being said, my question is this:
What,exactly, is Walpurgisnacht and how is it celebrated?

I have read the Satanic Bible in its entirety several times and I did not find any answers there. I have also not found any answers at the CoS website. I know that it is one of the few actual holidays celebrated by the Satanist so as a Satanist I should know this.
I realize that this answer may probably be easily found on the internet, but seing how any yahoo with a computer can put anything on the internet even if it complete bullshit, I would like to get an answer directly from a fellow Satanist: a source I know I can trust in this matter.

From The Satanic Bible
Quote:

The Eve of May has been memorialized as the night that all the demons, specters, afreets, and banshees would come forth and hold their wild revels, symbolizing the fruition of the spring equinox.




Walpurgisnacht is a night which, according to folklore, witches and warlocks would gather for their grand sabbats.

You can celebrate it, and any other day, in whatever way seems best to you.

Isn't the Vernal Equinox on April 21?
Would it be appropriate to celebrare Walpurgisnacht on this date, or must it be celebrated the last day of April?

Walpurgisnacht is not the vernal equinox.

Celebrate whatever you like in whatever manner you like.

Walpurgisnacht is thr night traditionally associated with the revels of witches & warlocks. Celebrate it or don't. It is entirely up to you.
