Traditionally the first day of summer, one of the earliest celebrations of Beltane appeared in pre-Christian times with the Walpurgis Night celebrations of the Germanic countries. It is also strongly associated with the Gaelic Beltane (bright fire). Beltane is well known for maypole dancing and the crowning of the Queen of the May. A propitious time for performing the Great Rite of Witchcraft, Beltane is ripe for sexual magic, fertility rites, money drawing and success spells.
