The Celtic Wheel of the Year
The Celtic Wheel of the Year is an annual cycle that follows the seasons and the solar cycle. It is made of eight festivals called Sabbats.
Following the ancient Celtic tradition, each Sabbat is usually celebrated in the community to honour, thank and pray to Mother Nature for physical and spiritual food.
In Story Arte we will also celebrate the Sabbats in the Celtic calendar.
The Celtic Calendar
- Samhain: From October 31st to November 1st. It is the last day of the Celtic year, a moment to honour the deads and our ancestors, as guides.
- Yule: Between December 19th and 23rd. Winter solstice. The longest night of the year. The birth of the Sun God and the resurgence of life and love is celebrated.
- Imbolc or Brigid: The night between February 1st and 2nd. Purification. We will celebrate the increasing light, luminosity, inspiration and initiation, while waiting for the spring.
