The upcoming Celtic festival signals a time for celebration and renewal. Traditionally, people light bonfires, dance, and decorate with flowers and greenery to welcome the spring season. It’s a time to honor the earth and the changing of the seasons, and to come together with loved ones to celebrate life and new beginnings as the winter begins to slowly transform to the looks of spring.
