Beltane honors life and is commonly known as May Day. It’s the halfway point between spring and summer. It’s most commonly observed on May 1, although festivities often begin the night prior on April 30 to celebrate the Great Wedding of the God and the Goddess. It represents the peak of Spring and the beginning of Summer. Earth energies are at their strongest and most active and all of life is bursting with potent fertility. This is also a popular time for Handfastings or pagan weddings.
