May Day and its associated May Pole dancing and bonfires go back thousands of years. The months of late April to early June is a time of celebration for the god Beltaine and his many incarnations throughout time. Beltane or Beltaine is known by other names such as Kronos, Saturn, Milcom , Moloch and Baal Hammon. The religion these characters spring from are the source of passing things through fire, jumping over fires , lighting bonfires for communal celebrations and holidays and the sacrifice of children.
In ancient times houses and temples were decked with greenery and white flowers in honor of Moloch/Beltane. Dairy foods and eggs was considered a good way to honor these gods and custards of cheese, eggs and milk were the foods of choice.All this to gloss over the murder of children and other dark insidious traditions.
On Eadar dà theine Bhealltainn,the Gaelic incarnation of this 'holiday', cattle and other animals as well as people were passed between two large bonfires to purify them. Cattle were purified because Moloch had the head of a calf. The passing between two bonfires was a substitute however for the original sacrifice of children and babies to moloch. In those ancient times children were burnt alive to this abomination.
Later when the pagan origins became an embarrassment to people who now had newer religions, they simply lit bonfires in the spring to celebrate various religious and secular holidays, like May Day for instance or many so-called religiously inspired holidays. Whatever their guise today, they are just as much abominations as they ever were.
Bonfires are of pagan origin and May Day is also a totally pagan way honoring pagan deities. Why would anyone partake of these traditions for any reason knowing this? Yet, over the years these pagan traditions have insinuated themselves into religious observances as well as secular holidays..
May Day became particularly popular with Communist nations. It never took off in the United States but lately those who have leftist leanings use the day as a day for demonstration against the United States. Communists have long used the day to spread dissatisfaction and discontent. Many today have not experienced the methods used by Communist infiltrators in the 50's and 60's to disrupt American life.
On May day, the high point of the worship of these gods, the people danced around a pole, a phallic symbol. The dancing around the pole with ribbons was part of the ancient fertility ceremonies of Babylon. None of these traditions stayed in Babylon, however. They eventually found their way into many religions and holidays. Most holidays today are based on the traditions of these abominable ancient religions. Most know it, most don't care. I think G-d cares quite a bit. As it grew dark bonfires were lit as part of celebrations. Yet their real original purpose remains a stench in the nose of G-d.
May Day will be used this year to protest against the Arizona illegal immigration law. So who do you think is behind such demonstrations? It was always Communists who fomented demonstrations and protests etc. even to busing in a major part of the protesters.
Try to excuse lighting bonfires or making May Poles all you want, they are an abomination.
In this video Russia celebrates May Day . The commentary is interesting.
