Hi Kaitlyn,

I'm not Pagan or Wiccan (Catholic, for my sins ), but having read a little bit about the Celts and their religious festivals I remember Beltane having something to do with fire and purification. I think the original idea was lighting a bonfire which people then jumped over, or alternatively two bonfires which people walked between (which is a bit easier if you ask me!). Obviously that is reliant on a lot of space, but if possible something like a small fire and possibly walking around it while saying a relevant prayer or invocation could work.
Alternatively, I found a few sites which may be of use:
Hope some of that helps and that you have an enjoyable Beltane.

However bleak things seem, however insurmountable the darkness appears, remember that you have worth and nothing can take that away.
