When I was a baby witch, it was really difficult for me to understand the Sabbats and the wheel of the year. To help all my baby witches, I made a short summary to make it easier.
🎄 Yule (Date: on the winter solstice, dec. 20-23) 🎄
This is the Sabbat for celebrating rebirth. Many people celebrate it similarly to Christmas, with gift giving, feasting, and wreath making. People will often kiss a consenting partner under a sprig of mistletoe for good luck.
🐏 Imbolc (Date: feb. 2) 🐏
This Sabbat celebrates the return of spring. People make corn dollies and set them in a basket next to a symbol of masculinity. Many Witches will clean out their homes during Imbolc.
🐣 Ostara (Date: on the vernal equinox, Mar. 20-23) 🐣
This Sabbat celebrates the coming time of fertility. Egg decorating is common during this time.
🔥 Beltane (Date: May 1) 🔥
This Sabbat focuses on fertility. Many Pagans choose to conceive children at this time (or just to enjoy themselves sexually with a partner). Beltane festivals are often high energy, with plenty of dancing and bonfires.
☀️ Litha (Date: on the summer solstice, Jun 20-23) ☀️
A Sabbat for celebrating the longest day of the year, as well as for mourning the shortening days after. Some Witches burn bonfires or light candles to represent the Sun.
🌾 Lughnasadh (Date: Aug 1 -> 1 day before my birthday!) 🌾
I love this Sabbat but I’m not able to pronounce this name :). This is the first of the three harvesting Sabbats. There are festivals of grain and bread. People make gingerbread men during this time.
🍁 Mabon (Date: on the autumnal equinox, sep. 20-23) 🍁
This is the second of the three harvesting Sabbats. Witches give thanks to the Earth and the harvest. Celebraters will make and drink wine at this time.
⛄️ Samhain (Date: nov. 1) ⛄️
This is the last of the three harvesting Sabbats. It is also the festival of the dead. The veil is at its thinnest at this time. Witches will sometimes hold a big feast during Samhain.

Lance’s family always made a big fuss on Easter. They would fill the house with eggs hidden in every possible place for all the younger kids to find.
Then they would decorate the various eggs they had found before sitting down for a big family dinner.
Lance particularly loved Easter because it was one of the few times a year his entire extended family came together and his home was filled with noise and laughter.
Then he went to space and didn’t even realise it was Easter until Pidge checked the calendar they had on their phone telling them exactly what kid of day it was.
Lance demanded that they celebrate in some way, much to the others protests, and got to work decorating the common area.
While Lance was running around hiding egg shaped things he had found and making little Easter treats for everyone. No one else really got involved.
Sure Hunk made a big meal when asked, but everyone else went on with normal.
It wasn’t until Allura tripped over a hidden egg did she snap and yelled at him for acting so childish. She went on and on until the other paladins began to feel sorry for their team mate.
Lance just stood there taking it all in with his hands behind his back.
When Allura finally asked if he had anything to say for himself, Lance just broke.
His face crumbled and tears started falling down his face. He started mumbling about how sorry he was and that he would do better.
Allura felt awful.
She had been fed up and stressed so took it out on him which she knew wasn’t fair.
She tried to explain but Lance dropped what he was hiding behind his back and ran off to his room quickly followed by Hunk.
The others felt bad but when they saw what Lance had dropped they felt even worse.
It was a drawing made in incredible detail of the seven of them standing in front of the lions.
Written on the picture in small curly handwriting in the corner was:
“Happy Easter to the best space family a home sick guy could ask for.”
