Festival of Ceres

Ceres, called Demeter in Greece, was the goddess of the field and harvest. In contrast with Artemis who was goddess of the wild places, Demeter was a deity of cultivated land, and of the food it produced.

Originally this was a time for making bread with what remained of last year's grain, and for making delicate pastries and honey cakes. Recipes like Amish friendship bread and sourdough starters can be spread around during this time, and it is a great time for creating community cookbooks. Spend time today alone and in group ritual talking about food: ways to use it for health and healing, for community growth, and for spiritual nourishment.

Beltane

May Day was a Celtic fertility festival. It is one of the most common Pagan festivals for public rituals, as well as private ones for fertility and sexuality. One of the most important elements of the day is the Belfire; jumping over it hand in hand with your sexual partner is supposed to guarantee a pregnancy in the coming year. Feel free to join these rituals where you can find them, and enjoy the company of other pagans who follow other traditions than your own.
