Beltane
All Day

Pagan/Wiccan holyday in the Southern Hemisphere begins at sunset on the evening before. As Pagans in the Northern Hemisphere celebrate Samhain and the coming of winter, Pagans in the Southern Hemisphere celebrate Beltane and the fertility and new life of the spring, often with a Maypole dance and Goddess ritual celebrating the sacred feminine and fertility.[i]
Reformation Day
All Day

Protestant Christian holyday: Martin Luther, a Catholic priest, nailed his 95 Theses to the doors of Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany on October 31st in 1517, protesting many Catholic practices and seeking to reform the Roman Catholic Church, sparking the Protestant Reformation which led to bloody clashes and the many Protestant denominations today.[i] Protestants commemorate this event, which led to profound religious and social changes for Christianity worldwide, on Reformation Sunday.  


Samhain
All Day

Pagan/Wiccan holyday in the Northern Hemisphere begins at sunset the evening before. Samhain, one of the 8 Sabbats of the Wheel of the Year, is a Celtic Festival of the Dead that honors the ancestors, when the veil between this world and the next is the thinnest. This ancient tradition survives in secular culture as Halloween. Neo-pagans reclaiming this harvest festival consider it the Witches New Year and the most important holyday of the year.[i]
