A Merry Beltane

"The month of May was come, when every lusty heart beginneth to blossom, and to bring forth fruit; for like as herbs and trees bring forth fruit and flourish in May, in likewise every lusty heart that is in any manner a lover, springeth and flourisheth in lusty deeds.

Merry Beltane to All. In Europe we called it May Day when I would visit my family. We would celebrate with a big feast and attend the local festivals. Guys would cut down young trees and attach them to poles with ribbons to profess their love to a special girl. Now I visit my family on Skype since I haven't had a long enough vacation to visit in years. But I will eventually because my family is really on me about that.

Everyone have a great day and celebration.

A very happy and uplifting day to all, hope there is some young wench eager to sample my maypole!(if I can remember where it is and how to erect it).

This is really stupid. This "holiday" probably didn't exist 60 years ago before Wicca was invented.

Beltane precedes Wicca by many centuries.

It is very obvious you don't have much of an education. You should have stayed awake in school. My family practiced this for centuries, which exceeds 60 years. And while you're busy celebrating your "christian" holidays such as the feast of Oestera or Easter (bunnies and eggs are given to celebrate fertility) and Yule (held at the winter solstice, it was so popular that the xtian church decided to move Christ's birthday to Dec 25, which was the date of the solstice in AD 400 or so). A self-educated bible scholar is worthless. Take some World Religion courses in a real college some time, fool. If you never managed to graduate from high school, they may even let you take it for No Credit.

Oh, and Revrund Morgan, please explain why Easter is held each year on the Sunday following the first full moon after the Vernal Equinox. It seems to me that the crucifixion and resurrection would have been a big enough event that SOMEONE would have remembered to write down the date. But, no, they decided to just pin the occasion on the back of the Pagan celebration of fertility.

RMJ, If you are wondering who Stepson of Thor is, he's my husband. An educated man, whom I am totally in love with and cherish. Do you know what the word archeology means? Paganism predates christianity by millenia, and most of the mythology in the bible is taken from pagan legends.

Albion, I knew you could find that maypole! I'm happy for you both. Happy Birthday to your beautiful young lady and Merry Beltane to you both.

Easter is when Jesus Christ died for your sins. They set up the timing like that so it will fall on a Sunday, which is God's holy day. It all makes sense to me.

It doesn't matter if it makes sense TO YOU, what matters is if it makes sense at all! Your response is pathetic. Does Christmas have to fall on a Sunday? Answer: Nope. So Easter gets to be mixed up with the Pagan celebration of fertility and the arrival of Spring, and your justification is that someone wanted it to be on a Sunday, and since everyone was already celebrating, why not crash the party? "We'll just have Christ's death recognized on the Sunday after the Oestera celebration! Full moon, lots of leftover wine. Eggs and Bunnies for the kiddies. Kool!"

Our sincere apologies, Mr. Christ, for the inconvenience, but we're just not set up for a crucifixion today. The Pagans are having their annual party right smack on the hill that we need to plant the cross on. So we're just going to take those nails out and patch you up. I'll have my people get in touch with your people to pick another day. Would a weekend work for you? Not much going on around here on the weekends. Kill you on Friday, up and about by Sunday morning. What do you say?

Think about it FOOL. Sunday is when all good Christians go to church. If Easter is in the middle of the week the timing doesn't work out as well.
