Beltane with The Great White
Bealtaine, the Bright Fire, the Feast of White Goddess.
Beltaine is the last of the three spring fertility feasts and the last day of spring, and the first day of summer.
Here's a French site about Beltaine :-)
In Finland mild mead is made a week or two before Beltaine, and then doughnuts are fried on the evening of Mayday, which is called Vappu in Finnish.
It is a nice idea to eat food with flowers and fresh herbs.
