|The Wheel of the Year
by Mike Nichols
In the 1980s, Mike Nichols wrote (and regularly updated) a wonderful series of articles
on the eight major holidays in the Wiccan (and generally the Pagan) year. The set we have
here was written in 1988, but only the dates given as examples are out of date. While these
articles give a great deal of history and background, please remember that they represent
the view of single person. Different people, let alone different Pagan religions or Wiccan
traditions, often have a different point of view.
