Wiccan holidays are based on the major solar and lunar events on the Wiccan Wheel of the Year.
Wiccan rituals for the Sabbats, for instance, celebrate the Sun’s influence on the Earth — that is, the seasonal growing cycle.
Wiccan Esbats honor the phases of the Moon, particularly the Full Moon.
Most of the Wiccan holidays are similar to celebrations in other religions. For instance, Yule and Christmas correspond so closely, they are almost interchangeable.
There’s a simple reason for this. Paganism predates these religions, and influenced their development.
