Burn Her! She's a Witch!

Alright, so it may sound a little weird, but trust us on this: Witches Night is something to behold—and it's actually a pretty family friendly affair, too. With its roots in purging the winter spirits, the festival was traditionally a marker of the end of winter and the beginning of spring. Now, though, folks usually burn an effigy of a hag and people can jump over the flames—if they're feeling daring. And, like with any good fake witch burning, the sausage and beer sellers come out in hoards to sell their wares to the onlookers.
