SWEFA Beltane 2008

SWEFA Beltane 2008

I will be at the Beltane 2008 celebration in the Tijeras area of New Mexico. It's a private affair and I am happy to have been invited to go.

What is Beltane?

For the Celts, Beltane marked the beginning of the pastoral summer season when the herds of livestock were driven out to the summer pastures and mountain grazing lands. In modern Irish, Mí na Bealtaine ('month of Bealtaine') is the name for the month of May.

Beltane is a cross-quarter day, marking the midpoint in the Sun's progress between the vernal equinox and summer solstice.

Beltane is celebrated in different manners around the world. It has been customary to light community bonfires and to light a branch to take back to the home to light your own harth. Also, it has been customary to decorate homes etc. with the branches of trees that are at bloom on this day.

However you celebrate the season, I wish you a happy Beltane.
