Beltaine is a Celtic reference to the high spring, there it happens in May. Here it happens in November, when it is Samhain there (we are on opposite hemispheres).

Why does the same rule not apply here as it does to Aibreain?

When translating opposite it wanted Mí na Bealtaine. This inconsistency is confusing.
