large opening quote symbolIn the Celtic tradition, the two greatest festivals of all are Bealtaine and Samhain — the beginning of Summer and the beginning of Winter. To the Celts, as to all pastoral peoples, the year had two seasons, not four; subtler divisions concerned crop-raisers rather than cattle-raisers. .. 1st May was an important one in old Ireland. On that day the women, children and herdsmen took the cattle off to the summer pastures, or 'booleys' (buaile or buailte), until Samhain. The same thing still happens, on the same dates, in the Alps and other parts of Europe. "
(Janet and Stewart Farrar, A Witches Bible Compleat, Vol. 1)
