Jump the Bel-Fire, dance and sing to celebrate!
The ancient Celtic name for May Day is Beltane, which is derived from the Irish Gaelic “’Bealtaine” or the Scottish Gaelic “Bealtuinn” which means “Bel-fire”. This is the fire of the Celtic God of light. One of the most important of the four great festival celebrations of the Pagan Celtic Calendar. Beltane is opposite on the wheel of the year from Samhain, which is usually considered the most important festival date. These two dates separate the year in halves, and are the beginning and the end of the fertile seasons. Join in the ritual celebration, try it skyclad if you dare!
