Green Man Cards for Beltane
Today is May Day, or what some Celtic calendars call 'Beltane.' Beltane is a lusty and lively day that is said to attract scores of the fairy folk. Therefore, in order to invite the blessings of the wee ones, it is often encouraged to leave a bit of food and drink somewhere outside or on a window ledge so they can partake and leave you some luck in return. It is also believed that they enjoy a nip or two now and then, so small sips of wine are also believed to garner the best of their blessings. You can save the rest for yourself. This day is getting better already.
I took the above explanation from a daily email I get. I thought it was a sweet introduction to the holiday. There is really much more to it including the beautiful May Pole tradition. But here is my little acknowledgment of the holiday.
