Beltane

The night before the 1st of May is known as Beltane and also known as May eve. It is an ancient Celtic holiday that celebrates the coming of spring and summer.
Traditions include dancing around the Maypole, Bright clothing and flowers, and drinking heather mead.
So why celebrate such an ancient holiday? Our ancestors took these beliefs seriously before the Romans implanted Christianity on Europe and forced an end to all the original religions. That meant revising our history so Winter Solstice became Christmas, Samhain became Halloween and Beltane disappeared altogether. As a tribute to my ancestors I will celebrate this weekend for Beltane. Then on Monday, I will celebrate international workers day which is May 1. It is a political holiday that originally celebrated the winning of an 8 hour work day by unions in Chicago, IL.
