Beltaine is the third of the four Celtic Fire Festivals-first being Samhainne, Imbolg, Beltaine finishing with Lughnassadh.
Beltaine falls on May 1st with the evening of the 30th of April known as Beltaine eve. It is an ancient fertility festival associated with the Celtic God Bel (Belenus, or Balor) who is a God of light, fire and the Sun.
