If you are interested in paganism or Wicca then you should really get to know our celebration of the seasons, called "The Wheel Of The Year."
Wiccan's, pagans and folks into the ancient mystical mysteries of life truly enjoy following and practicing "The Wheel Of The Year" because it keep's us in sync with the rhythm of Mother Earth, The God and Goddess loving energy that lives within us all. Keeps us in a state of humility and gratitude for what each season has to offer us, father winter for his power of introspection and spiritual strength, fruitful spring for the bounty of life and love blessed upon us after a time of cold and darkness.
