Beltane Customs, Traditions, and Folklore By Patti Wigington

Beltane is coming up soon, on May 1, and it’s a great time to get outside and celebrate the greening of the earth and the fertility of the land. This is a season that has been observed by many cultures, in a variety of ways, over the history of time. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular customs and traditions of Beltane – and if you’re one of our southern hemisphere readers, be sure to scroll down for some background on the history of Samhain!

There will be smallish multiple posts from the email I received from Thoughtco.com. So look for them over the next few days.

( Side note from Lady Beltane – Beltane and Samhain our two Fire festivals when the veil between us and the Spirit world/plane is at its thinnest. Such an interesting time of year.)
