[LAST UPDATED 23/04/22]

This is a brief list of some of the holidays that I celebrate at present. As such, this list is far from exhaustive, and may indeed be revisited, revised and reviewed from time to time.
Most of my holidays are connected to my being a Reidareis of Sidjus Reidarje Sauilis. As a member of Sidjus Reidarje Sauilis I follow their calendar which is lunisolar. The holidays of this traditions are not mentioned here.
It also feels unnecessary to add anniversaries, birthdays and deathdays to this list, but it might still be worth mentioning that I do acknowledge and celebrate those too.


The first of every month: Kalends. I give worship to Ianus and Gods of liminality, borders and crossings on the first day of each month with thanks for what has been and thanks for what is to come.

Oíċe ṠaṁnaLá Saṁna: Typically celebrated 31st October and 1st November, this falls roughly halfway between the Autumn equinox and the Winter solstice. I honour the dead, the deceased and those who came before. I honour the spirits of the land, hearth and home. For many Celtic polytheists, this is considered the start of a new year. Typically, I celebrate this across three days around the full moon closest to the over-culture’s date for Halloween, either with a ritual on each night, or on the night of the full moon itself.

Drūrēndagaz (Day of Mourning): Celebrated the day before the full moon after the new moon after the Autumn equinox. This day acknowledges Marirīks Lībis‘ receding and the emergence of Moririx Marui to join the Hunt over the darker months, as Marilībarsa transforms into Morimarusa and Lusanjâ weeps for what was lost as She sank.

Álfablót: Celebrated on the first full moon after the first new moon after the Autumnal equinox. I honour the Álfar, the ahmans/u̯ixtā (wights), the landahmans (land spirits) and other such beings worthy of respect and veneration.

Grıanstad an Ġeıṁrıḋ: The Winter solstice.

Jól: I celebrate this over three days across the Winter solstice, acknowledging the Hunt, and honouring the spirit(s) of Winter.

Imbolg (nó Lá Ḟéıle Bríd): Typically celebrated 1st February, this falls roughly halfway between the Winter solstice and the Spring equinox. I honour the oncoming spring and the increased fertility of the land. Typically, I celebrate this with a ritual on the full moon closest to the overculture’s date of 1st February.

Cónoċt an Earraıġ: The Spring equinox.

Mariwindōnahts (Night of Changing Waters): Celebrated the day before the new moon after the full moon after the Spring equinox. This day acknowledges Marirīks Lībis‘ emergence and the withdrawing of Moririx Marui towards the end of the Hunt and the beginning of the warmer, brighter months, as Morimarusa transforms into Marilībarsa and Lusanjâ makes Her peace with the dead she resides over.

Lá Bealtaıne: Typically celebrated 1st May, this falls roughly halfway between the Spring equinox and the Summer solstice. Being the opposing point of the year to Oíċe Ṡaṁna, I celebrate the land at its warmest, brightest and most fertile, giving thanks for all the Gods provide. Typically, I celebrate this with a ritual on the full moon closest to the overculture’s date at the start of May.

Grıanstad an tSaṁraıḋ: The Summer solstice.

Lúnasa: Typically celebrated 1st August, this falls roughly halfway between the Summer solstice and the Autumn equinox. This being a time at which I celebrate the harvest with reflection on the year that has been and considerations towards preparing for the darker, colder time of year. Typically, I celebrate this with a ritual on the full moon closest to the overculture’s date at the start of August.

Cónocht an Ḟóṁaır: The Autumnal equinox.
