BEALTAINE – Monday 1st May = The Fire Festival. The Celtic Festival of Bealtaine is a Cross Quarter Day, halfway between the Spring Equinox and the Summer Solstice. It is a rite of passage into Summer from Winter marked by lit bonfires. The lovely song “Thugamar fein an Samhradh linn” (we brought the Summer with us). Summer is welcome as are the return of the swallows from exotic places.


In our Irish tradition, the picking of flowers and green branches and bringing them home was symbolic of bringing home the May. Thus, the tradition of the May Altar and crowning Mary as the Queen of the May. Bring flowers of the rarest, bring blossoms the fairest, from garden and woodland and hillside and dale; our full hearts are swelling, our glad voices telling the praise of the loveliest flower of the vale! O Mary, we crown thee with blossoms today! Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May.
