Beltane?

What do you usually do? Are you doing anything different this year? Are you already planning for it?

I'm updating my BOS in several sections, one of which is my Sabbats and Esbats, so I'm doing research again to add to it and come up with new things. I'm starting on Beltane today.

  • I have my own personal rituals and those stay the same. But with the public group I'm in, the ritual changes every year. I've already been notified that several core regular planners will not be at planning and that has my head in a tizzy already. We've done a Maypole dance and an inner meditations to find our loving selves. Cronos only knows what this year will bring as far as ritual.

    I'm doing research as well. I'd like to offer something different or new twist on the old at the Beltane planning session.

  • I don't do nearly as much as I used to. Just a few crafts with the kids (or at least I'll attempt, I'm not crafty) and a small ritual.

  • Hadn't made any plans yet, but I will probably include a special dish with dinner and explain to my family why it's being included.

  • What is it exactly? I remember reading up on it during my studies once but it wasn't something I really paid attention to

  • My Circle celebrates with our "Annual Burnt Offering to the Gods Ritual/BBQ". I build a campfire in my back yard, and everyone brings their own meat (or meat sub) and a salad or dessert to share (I do the potatoes), and the first bite of each item gets cast into the ritual/cooking fire. Also, we convert our flagpole into a Maypole!!!

    And my 3y/o and I will be doing May Baskets for her friends at Daycare!
