Beltane blessings, my friends! I know I am late with the greeting, but the season extends well into May as far as I’m concerned. Beltane is about new beginnings, new life and vibrancy. I took my daughters and their friend, along with grandparents and the dog, to a local Wakes at the weekend. It was basically a village fete, with a fun dog show (we didn’t win), funfair rides, games, jumble sales, a duck race on the river, and the Maypole. We loved watching a group of local school children perform the Maypole dance, twisting the colourful ribbons around and about. Later in May it will be our town celebrating as we have our local Rose Fete. My daughters will join the parade with their dance school, perform in the arena, and enjoy the funfair and stalls. This is a beautiful, colourful time of year!
