Beltane Bonfires

Beltane ~ May 1st ~ In Irish mythology, the beginning of the Summer season for the Tuatha Dé Danann and the Milesians started at Bealtaine.
Great bonfires would mark a time of purification and transition, heralding in the season in the hope of a good harvest later in the year, and were accompanied with ritual acts to protect the people from any harm by Otherworldly spirits.
