Pagan / Wiccan / Celtic Fire Festival Holidays
The cross-quarter festivals are sometimes referred to as 'fire festivals', and are celebrated on four days placed approximately mid-way between each successive pair of solar festivals. They are more in step with the changing of the seasons and the cycle of plant growth, and are considered more feminine and lunar in nature than the others. As they are not tied specifically to measurable events, these festivals fall on the same days each year. In earlier times, the fire festivals were linked to lunar events, with each festival being celebrated on the first full moon preceding the dates given.
