Silver MoonFairie's Haven

Beltane (May Day)

One of the Greater Sabbats. The God has reached manhood, and the Goddess is ready to receive him as her lover. This holiday celebrates the union of the Goddess and the God, and is a major fertility festival. The maypole is wrapped with ribbons to symbolize this union. Fields and livestock are blessed, and people jump bonefires to ensure luck.
