Bealtaine was historically a Gaelic festival celebrated in Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man at the start of May. Bealtaine and Samhain were the leading terminal dates of the civil year in medieval Ireland, though the latter festival was the more important. The festival regained popularity during the Celtic Revival and remains observed in the Celtic Nations and the Irish diaspora.
