This second volume of Celebrating the Seasons of Life: Beltane to Mabon explores Wicca's relationship with other religions. Wicca is the largest and best-known Neo-Pagan religion, but it is not the only one-Northern Paganism (Asatru) and Druidry share its traditions. Do you know which Runes are associated with Summer Sabbats? Are you aware of the Druid associations with them? Celebrating the Seasons of Life acknowledges these links and incorporates material designed to emphasize these religions' shared heritage. The stories of the Sabbats help us to reconnect with our lore and bring new meaning and twists to our current practices, in a variety of ways. Celebrating the Seasons of Life gives us the history of each holiday and explains its place in modern life. Through it, you can discover a variety of rituals that are ideal for covens, solitaries, and Wiccan families-including special sections on what children of various ages are ready to learn about these holidays: * Beltane (May 1st) * Litha (June 21st) * Lammas (August 1st) * Mabon (September 21st)
