Fresh growth covers the ground, juicy and lush. The air is abuzz with busy bees and the Earth is decked out in her prettiest flower dress - it's the wedding day of the Goddess and the young Sun God. Fully grown and fertile they join in loving union. Nature is celebrating with them and everywhere, love is in the air. The fires of Bel are lit and people join the wedding feast of the May King and Queen, jumping the fires to purify their souls and showing the corn how high to grow.
Beltain is a time to celebrate love and life and the marvellous miracle of fertility. It is a time of divine ecstasy - full of potential yet to take shape.
