Bealtaine and Bel: A Festival for Luck and Purification

“They fed the fire from great bundles of sacred wood brought to the knoll on Beltane Eve. When the sacred fire became kindled, the people rushed him and brought their herds and drove them through and round the fire of purification.”

Alexander Carmichael, Carmina Gadelica, 1900
