Wiccan Holidays
Ivy Line.....

"I am Pagan. I celebrate the changing seasons, the turning of the Wheel of the Year. I celebrate with singing, dancing, feasting, rituals, and in other ways. I celebrate each turn of the Wheel with personal spiritual practices and by taking part in community festivals."

Wiccan Sabbats:

  • Mabon (September 21st - 23rd)

And two Solstices... The longest night and the longest day.
  • Yule (December 21st - 23rd)

  • Litha (June 21st - 23rd)

They occur roughly between the minor Sabbats, typically at the beginning of the month. Different Wiccan traditions assign various names and dates to these festivals.
