Throughout Celtic tradition the Bee was a protected creature. It was from Bee’s honey that people made mead, a drink that appears in Paradise as nectar of the Gods. Mead was purported to have medicinal qualities.
As in other settings Bee is also a wise spiritual messenger. When someone died the farmer was to inform the bees so that they could take the news abroad.
Superstition tells us that when a Bee dances near your window it portends a guest’s arrival, and one entering the house was a sign of good luck.
In Ireland people believe you must treat bees respectfully or they will find a new home. They are, in fact, tiny members of the family who want to be part of all the news....😉😊
