Who is ready for second Halloween?
Let’s make it April 30th. That date is six months from October 31st and, according to the Neo-Druidic Wheel of the Year, Beltane begins at sunset in the Northern hemisphere, with Samhain beginning at sunset in the Southern hemisphere.
(This image is The Wheel of the Year in the Northern Hemisphere. Pagans in the Southern Hemisphere advance these dates six months to coincide with their own seasons.)
** Thanks to Sherrie King for pointing out the Edinburgh Beltane Fire Festival in Scotland and Sawnee Molina for letting us know about Walpurgisnacht in Germany. Can’t wait to research them and find out about more traditions.
