Today, in addition to being the memorial of one of my favorite Saints, Pius V (of whom Tundra Terry says, "Trads-more-trad-than-trads love him! In their opinion, there hasn’t been a pope (like him) since."), is also Walpurgis Night. In European folk belief, it is a day when witches gather and are especially powerful. It is also a major day of 'celebration' among certain groups of modern occultists. What a day for a witch hunt!
Today also marks the 63rd anniversary of the self-inflicted assumption of room temperature of the Austrian that General Patton, among others, referred to as, "that paper-hanging son-of-a-bitch."
