Beltane

• Apr 29th, 2010 • Category: herbs, magic

Tomorrow, apart from being the anniversary of my dad’s birthday, is Beltane and/or Walpurgisnacht.  “Wait”, you say. “Isn’t that May first?”  Well, yes, except that you have to remember that the ancients started their day at sundown.

Needless to say, the visit was entirely too short. When I found out they were expecting twin boys, I knew immediately what I […]
