About Beltane


Beltane originally marked the beginning of summer and was when cattle were taken out to their summer pastures. The fire festival ritual was performed to protect the cattle, crops and people, and to encourage growth. Special bonfires were kindled, and their flames, smoke and ashes were thought to have protective powers. The people and their cattle would walk around or between bonfires, and sometimes leap over the flames or embers. Gatherings would be accompanied by a feast and doors, windows, byres and livestock would be decorated with yellow May flowers, perhaps because they evoked fire. Many of these customs were part of May Day or Midsummer festivals in other parts of Scotland, Great Britain and Europe.
