Today, May 5, at 4:20 pm EDT, is the astronomical half-way point between the Vernal Equinox (March 20 at 7:21 pm EDT) and the Summer Solstice (June 21 at 1:16 pm EDT). These half-way points between the equinoxes and solstices are called cross-quarter days and often the times of traditional holidays like the May 1 Celtic holiday of Beltane (Bealtaine). Be a good excuse to get naked and dance around a fire if it wasn't supposed to be so damn cold tonight (frost warnings)!
