Explore May Days, Remember This, and more!

May Day is related to the Celtic festival of Beltane and the Germanic festival of Walpurgis Night.  – it has traditionally been an occasion for celebration. As Europe became Christianized, the pagan holidays lost their religious character and either changed into popular secular celebrations, as with May Day, or were merged with or replaced by new Christian holidays. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/May_Day

Beltane Celebration - One of the four major Sabbats in the Celtic tradition, Beltane celebrates life. For the Celts, it was a festival that insured fertility and growth.
