The Pagan Book of Days: A Guide to the Festivals, Traditions, and Sacred Days of the Year, was assembled by author Nigel Pennick and has become the penultimate compendium of information on traditional pagan and neopagan holidays.
The first edition of Pennick’s book sold more than 30,000 copies, and contains information on rituals and celebrations that have been celebrated for hundreds (if not thousands) of years. It also includes detailed charts of solstices, equinoxes, and lunar phases all the way through the year 2033.
Many of the traditional and/or religious holidays celebrated in the Western world today find their roots in ancient Pagan festivals and rites. These earthly traditions emphasize a sense of spirituality and celebrate both femininity and the innate connection between human beings and the planet.
Inside this unique daybook, you’ll find observances of the ancient Greek, Roman, Celtic, Anglo-Saxon, and Norse traditions, as well as (of course) the traditions of Wicca.
The Pagan Book of Days provides details on a host of different holidays, gods, and goddesses in an attempt to analyze each particular holiday through a wide and complete collection of lenses
Beautiful illustrations throughout the book depict images from northern European and other classical traditions. Ultimately, The Pagan Book of Days is the ideal way to incorporate the ancient cultural and spiritual practices observed by your forefathers into your daily, 21st century life.
