In Wicca our holidays are known as sabbats and the new and full moons esbats. We follow what is called the wheel of the year which has eight sabbats on it (each listed bellow). In the wheel of the year the new year is Samhain. Each sabbat begins on the night before and ends the night of but you may worship how ever you wish for there is no set rules. At the bottom of this page I have added a picture of the wheel of the year.
Samhain; (Oct. 31) The third and final harvest. The veil between worlds is at its thinnest, allowing us greater awareness and connection with the realms of magick, and with those who have gone before.
Yule; (Dec. 21-23) The Winter Solstice: the longest night and shortest day of the year. The light and warmth of the sun begins its return.
Imbolg; (Feb. 2) A breath of life begins to awaken the cold and sleeping Earth. We thank the Lord and Lady for the new life to come.
Ostara; (March 19-22) Spring Equinox. This is a time marked by the sowing of seeds and the awakening of the Earth. On this day night and day are equal and back in balance.
Beltane; (May 1) A day of fertility and abundance, full of reverly, feasting, and merrymaking in honor of the budding crops and new growth all around us. Oten celebrated with bonfires, dancing, and the celebration of couples and love.
Litha; (June 19-23) Summer solstice. The longest day and shortest day of the day. From this day on the nights get longer and summer gets weaker. This is sometimes seen as the death of the Sun King.
Lammas; (Aug. 2) A time to revere the first the harvest and fruits of the season, and to prepare for the dark months ahead. Often celebrated with loaves of bread.
Mabon; (Sept. 21-23) Second harvest and the Fall Equinox. Night and day are again equal. This is a time for feasting and being mindful to rest, to enjoy all of our blessings and to give thanks to the Lord and Lady for all our blessings of the year.
