May 1 All day
Today is the fire and fertility festival. Jumping over the balefire was said to insure protection. Dance around the May Pole. Ring bells to scare away bad spirits. This is a time for appreciation and affection for all that you have been given in your life. It is also the end of spring planting. A time for new beginnings, concepts and ideas.
