Mayday Celebrations

The above festival was celebrated in Wales: in order to observe the arrival of Summer time.

 

Mayday in Wales is not to celebrate equinox or solstice.

 

The Mayday festival in Wales is a custom consumed in fire: fires to turn out the herds of cattle from Winter quarters; fires to light the way for the cattle; fires to cleanse away diseases that may harm the cattle.

 

Fires for Baltan also known as Beltane; fire and flame for the Druidic  purification rites of the arrival of Summer.

 

The fire festivals of Mayday celebrations were carried out with a lot of pomp and ceremony.

The Welsh language is making a return in the country of Wales. Great. Although I am still learning.
