Beltane is a beloved festival primarily celebrated in Celtic countries.
That’s us! This hearty day marks the peak of Spring and the opening of arms for the upcoming Summer.
Everything is flourishing and beautiful and our ancestors knew how to throw a party for the occasion!
The festival goes from sunset to sunset, departing from the April showers and entering the warmth of May.
To celebrate in a traditional manner, why not replicate some customs performed?
Get dressed up in whites, reds and greens (don’t forget some matching jewellery for that extra embellishment!)
Dance with your friends and family with some traditional music.
Paint some eggs. Not like Easter, even wilder!
Stick to fires in your chimney to honour to the fire god Belenus
Be proud of your heritage
