Wolfschuhnacht
15_wolf.jpg

On the night of the first Sunday after the first full moon after the Spring equinox, it is said that wolves wearing striped stockings emerge from the woods around Huge Red. To placate the Wolves, every household puts out pairs of shoes or boots by the door - one pair for each person. Households that fail to provide sufficient offerings to the Wolves have sometimes reported mysterious disappearances of pets and livestock, and townsfolk find in the morning their dogs wearing a sock or two. Occasionally, a person awoken briefly during the night will later report having glimpsed their dog walking away into the night, never to be seen again, with striped socks on all four feet.
