    Did you know?

    Celtic people of a bygone age used to celebrate a festival called Beltane festival. Whilst discovering that people celebrated festivals might not shock, their method of celebration might surprise the average 21st century person. During the festival they would light bonfires atop a hill and would proceed to roll down round cakes from the top. If the cake doesn't break, they believe it will bring good fortune
