The May Queen is often crowned at Beltane. They then go from door-to-door singing, carrying flowers and asking for money and they will receive May blessings. This bestowing of blessings and this creative power causes the stirrings in the world. Her song indicates that those who give while receive the fullest bounty. In France, a jilted male would lie in a field and pretend to be asleep, if any female was willing to marry him she would wake him with a kiss.
