What is the Wheel of the Year
The wheel of the year is called one year in the northern tradition, which includes 8 major holidays, dividing the year into several periods. The Wheel of the Year for the Scandinavians begins with the holiday Yule, or the Winter Solstice, which is celebrated on December 20th. Next comes Imbolc — a mid-winter holiday with a fixed date: February 2.
These two holidays fall on the winter period and are associated with winter fun and treats.
Spring period Wheels of the year also includes two holidays. The first, March 19, is marked Ostara, or the Spring Equinox. This date is considered the day of the final victory of spring over winter and the revival of all life after a winter sleep.
The second main holiday of spring is Belteyn or Beltan — the holiday of love and life.
After Belteyn, the Wheel of the Year spins up and summer comes — a time of rapid growth, flowering and solar energy. The Scandinavians attach great importance to summer: this is the time of growing stocks for the whole following year. Therefore, the first holiday of the summer period, — Lita is filled with colors, laughter and dancing.
In our Slavic tradition, Lita coincides with the holiday of Ivan Kupalo, and even the rites of the Scandinavians are in many ways similar to the rites of our ancestors.
After Lita comes the time for hard work and growing crops, which are diluted with the feast of grains and apples — Lammas. This day is celebrated on August 1 and is similar to our Apple Savior. Lammas closes the main summer period, pushing the Wheel of the Year further, towards the autumn frosts and the harvest festival — the Autumn Equinox, or Mabona, which is celebrated on September 22 each year. After Mabon, the Scandinavians celebrate the second autumn festival — Samhain or Samhein.
It is considered a holiday of commemoration of the dead and it corresponds to Halloween, which is widely celebrated with us.
Thus the Wheel of the Year closes. Between 8 seasonal holidays there are also many dates associated with the lunar cycles.
