The balefire(or bonfire) is a ritual part in many beliefs, often of purification and consecration. In ancient times, cattle: important symbols of wealth and status, were led through the smoke of a bonfire. Couples who were to be wed on May Day would leap through the flames of the bonfire to seal their vows. Coals from a bonfire would be taken home to light the fires in family hearths, a practice thought to bring good fortune. It was also believed that the residents of the Faery realm were incapable of producing fire themselves; embers of bonfires would be carried to the underworld and tended there. In other beliefs, the balefire was used to mark safe havens on the long winter nights, lighting the way home and abroad for weary travellers.

The Balefire Awards were made to bring recognition to and award those who have made a positive difference in the magickal and pagan communities, as well as in the world community. We believe that all those who have made a difference should be recognized and rewarded for their works and deeds.
