The Wheel of the Year

If you see something here that needs more explaination, want to add something or have a ritual or seasonal activities to add, please e-mail me. A good book about The Sabbats and the Wheel of the Year that I have found is called The Sabbats by Edain McCoy. Most of the info. I will provide here will be from that book.

The following paragraph is from a chart I have on my wall at home near my altar. It is by Amber K (A Pagan author): As the wheel turns, Pagans celebrate eight holy days or Sabbats. Some say the Lady of Life rules Spring and Summer, while the Lord of Death and Resurrection rules Fall and Winter. Others say the divine Son is born of the Great Mother at Yule, lies in ecstasy with the young Goddess at Beltane and sacrifices himself in Life's cause at Lughnassad.

As you can or probably will see, a lot of our Sabbats have been adapted to other religions. Especially the Christians. Yule started out as our celebration of the birth of our God. We decorate A Yule tree (just like they decorate a Christmas Tree), we make Yule logs as a symbol of the balefire that is normally held outside, and a lot of the old Pagan Yule tide songs have been converted and made popular by Christian ways.
