Beltaine

At the Celtic festival of Beltaine, (the eve of the 1st of May), the people invoked and enlisted the aid of the tree spirits. 

The Maypole represented the transplanting of a special tree in the village. It was once a living tree, whose Dryad or spirit was requested to ensure a good harvest. In ancient times, the door of a house would have had a resident tree spirit, to protect the house and its occupants.
