What Are the Sabbats?
The holidays, or Sabbats, are representations of the start of each season and mid-way points between them. They are split evenly throughout the year.
They are referred to as pagan holidays as they hold roots in the pagan religions of the Celtic and Germanic pagans. Wiccan observe these days as Sabbats. Although the word Sabbat holds roots in Judaism and Hebrew, in reference to the Wiccan religion, it originates from the word Sabbath, which means a meeting or gathering to practice rituals and rites.
