Beltaine is also known as Baal Tinne, Beltane, Bel's Fire, Cet Samhain, Mayday, Tana Festiva, or Walpurgisnacht, and is generally celebrated on or about the first of May.
In many cultures, Beltaine celebrates the beginning of the growing season with the plowing and planting of fields. Fertile ground accepting the seed of new life; the coming together and mating of Mother Earth and Father Sun, resulting in the conception of the young god, the cycle having come full course.
