Beltane is on May 1st and this is where we get the May Pole dance. Today it is just
a fun dance to do. In early Beltane festivals the Dance would be used to pair up
couples for the night and at the end of the festival there would be many year and
a day Handfastings. This is the last of the Spring Sabbats and it ushers in Summer.
At Dragon Palm we usually have a mystery play about the King and the Goddess -
It can also be spelled: Beltene, Beltine, Beal-
Maypole Dance, Greenwood marriage, and the last spring Sabbat.
