On the evening of April 30th, Czechs gather to build a bonfire and prepare an effigy of the witch that kept winter around so long. Czechs used to believe that the power of the witches would weaken as the weather got warmer. so they thought that if they made something that looked like a witch and burned it, they could finally get rid of the cold weather.
