The fields are bare, the leaves have fallen from the trees, and the skies are going grey and cold. It is the time of year when the earth has died and gone dormant. Every year on October 31, the Sabbat we call Samhain presents us with the opportunity to once more celebrate the cycle of death and rebirth. For many Pagan and Wiccan traditions, Samhain is a time to reconnect with our ancestors, and honour those who have died. This is the time when the veil between our world and the spirit realm is thin, so it's the perfect time of year to make contact with the dead.

Mabon is the name used by some pagans for one of the eight annual holidays which form the core of the 'wheel of the year'. It is celebrated on the Autumnal Equinox, which in the northern hemisphere occurs on or around September 23rd (occasionally the 22nd). Many celebrate on the 21st since most early Wiccan and Neopagan sources reference this date as Mabon. In the southern hemisphere, the Autumnal Equinox occurs usually around March 21.

For people of nearly any religious background, the time of the winter solstice is a time when we gather with family and loved ones. For all Pagans including Wiccans, it's often celebrated as Yule, but there are literally dozens of ways you can enjoy the season.
