A seasonal interpretation of the eight Wiccan Sabbats. The wheel of the year, from
Yule to Samhain. The lore, history, and celebrations of the Wiccan Holidays. These
sabbats are a major part of the Wiccan religion.
In most Pagan cultures, the sun god is seen as split between two rival personalities:
the god of light and his twin, his 'weird', his 'other self', the god of darkness.
They are Gawain and the Green Knight, Gwyn and Gwythyr, Llew and Goronwy, Lugh and
Balor, Balan and Balin, the Holly King and the Oak King, etc. Often they are depicted
as fighting seasonal battles for the favor of their goddess/lover, such as Creiddylad
or Blodeuwedd, who represents Nature.
