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.
