Beltane

#‎Beltane‬, or May Day, signifies the beginning of the light half of the year. Traditionally, bonfires were the center of the celebration, and it marked the beginning of the grazing season for livestock. The name Beltane comes from the old Celtic word for fire - teine - and corresponds to one of the oldest Celtic gods, Belenus, who was associated with pastoral life.

I love pagan festivals, celebrations, and music. And I've searched YouTube for songs about this wonderful day. Have a bright and blessed Beltane and enjoy some great music!
