Calan Mai 1 May 2023
Calan Mai or Calan Haf (first day of summer) is an ancient tradition in Wales and can be traced back to the Pagan Beltane celebration. It is held on the first of May and celebrates the first day of summer, which is also known as Mayday in other areas of the UK. Fires are often associated with the celebration and symbolise purification and good fortune for the harvest and personal prosperity.
