I wanted to wish a Happy Beltaine to all the Wiccan/Druid/Pagan members of ADISC
For the folks who don't know what Beltaine is, here's the thumbnail version:
-- It's a Crossquarter Sabbat that occurs at the midpoint between the spring quiinox (Ostara) and the summer solstice (Litha)
-- It celebrates the rapidly quickening increase in life now that winter is over.
-- It celebrates the uniting of the Goddess and God (yes, our gods get to have sex!)
The Christian Church (at least the one I occasionally attend does) has some minor holiday this weekend that involves the blessing of animals. My guess is that it's a carryover from the Pagan faiths. Very interesting!
The Pagan groups I'm affiliated with is doing their Beltaine service tomorrow evening. That will be pretty cool.
Anyway... Happy Beltaine and blessed be!
