What Does Beltane Mean?

Beltane is a Gaelic word bealtainn, bealtuinn, representing the Celtic May Day festival. Occurring on May 1st, Beltane is celebrated by dancing around the Maypole and sometimes crowning a May Queen with a garland. Always celebrated with brightly colored flowers, those who celebrate Beltane may gather around a fire pit in the cool spring evening of May Day, catching up with their rural neighbors about the comings and goings of the village. Beltane is a colorful, joyful welcoming of spring. Suellen Ocean is the author of the historic novel The Celtic Prince Available here:
