Beltane

Today is Beltane, a Gaelic May Day celebration. It marks the mid point between the spring equinox and summer solstice in the northern hemisphere.
It signifies fertility, and the past rituals were done to help bring strong livestock and abundant healthy crops.
To honor the sun, and the life it gives bonfires were lit, and livestock ran through the smoke, in an effort to bring good luck and have a blessed and fruitful year, and women jumped over the fire to help bring fertility.
