Witches and Warlock - Annual Wiccan Holidays

Witches and Warlocks have a right to enjoy holidays too. There are eight holidays on the Wiccan Calendar. These Wiccan holidays are called "Sabbats". The New Year's begins on October 31st, Halloween night. It is important to note, that witches and warlocks celebrate their holidays from sundown on the date of the holiday through sundown the next day.

Did you Know? Witches and Warlocks in the Southern Hemisphere celebrate opposite holidays. They celebrate Winter Solstice as we celebrate Summer Solstice. Their Spring Equinox, is our Fall Equinox. And, so forth.


Here are the eight Wiccan (or Witch) Sabbats:

New Years Day October 31st at sundown   Also known as Samhain or All Hallow's Eve. This is New Years on the Druid calendar. The wall between earth and the underworld is thin at this time of year. On  Halloween night, the wall opens. Samhain, the Lord of  Darkness,  rises from the underworld. He roams the world looking for lost souls. It is an evil and wicked night, a perfect night for a witch to celebrate New Years!

Winter Solstice  (December 21st) Also known as Yule. This is the shortest day of the year. And, conversely, the longest night.  Witches and warlocks celebrate the birth of the Sun God, as from this point forward the days get longer. Wiccan celebrations include yule logs, yule trees and Mistletoe. Sounds a little like Christmas , huh!?! More on Winter Solstice.

Imbolic  February 2and  This day honors the Brigid, the goddess of fertility, fire and healing. It is also a time of increasing strength for the sun god. This Wiccan holiday coincides with Candlemas and Ground Hog's Day.

Ostara March 21st This day on the Witches calendar, is the Spring Equinox. The German goddess Oestra, goddess of Fertility is honored. More on Spring Equinox.

Beltane May 1st Previously celebrated on May 5, Beltane was moved to May 1st to coincide with May Day. This is a high holiday in celebration of the god and goddess of fertility. Eggs are a sign of fertility, and a symbol of this day. Early summer warmth is in the air.

Summer Solstice or Litha June 21st This day celebrates the sun god at his highest point. Nighttime has been dominated by daylight. More on Summer Solstice.

Lammas or Harvest Eve July 31st This holiday celebrates the first harvest.

Feast of Mabon September 21st The Autumn equinox has arrived. On the Wiccan calendar, we celebrate the celebration of the birth of Mabon, the son of Mordon, the Goddess of the earth. It is also the harvest festival. More on Autumn Equinox.
