Tapping into Celtic, Roman, Egyptian, and other cultural traditions, Nigel Pennick explores the individual significance of almost every day of the year. Pennick reveals some of the mechanics, such as moon phases and equinoxes, underlying many important holidays, and he breaks the year into seasons, months, and even hours, offering a peek into the importance of even the smaller divisions of the year. --Brian Patterson
"Month by month, Pennick lists and elucidates festivals, traditions, and sacred days from the 'pagan' calendar. Includes ancient Greek, Roman, Celtic, Anglo-Saxon, Norse, Goddess, Mystery, and to some extent Wicca."
