The word Beltane originates from Celtic and Gaelic words meaning ‘bright fire’, and is celebrated by the lighting of bonfires. It is a celebration of life, the earth is in full bloom and the days are long. It is a time to celebrate all the you have been given and all you have achieved. It is also a time to look at the parts of your life in which you feel less fulfilled and make positive plans to address this. Beltane is also a festival of fertility, when the God and Goddess join together.
