Beltane is a fertility and fire festival that celebrates the return of spring, the sun’s warmth and nature’s abundance.  As life springs forth from the fertile earth, this is a good time for all celebrations of fertility, new ideas, and prosperity.  Beltane is associated with bonfires, Maypoles, planting, handfastings, faeries, the Green Man, Morris Dancing, flowers, birds, bees, fertility magic, passion and love!
