OK, so four major holidays and then some to honor different gods and goddesses, right? Thanks Moon Ivy and Juni, this really helps  Smiley .

Some folks who focus on a specific Celtic culture might have additional celebrations in addition to the four Cross Quarter days, yes. For example, the Gaulish goddess Epona is known to have had a feast day in December (18th, I think) - but that was under Roman influence.

In Scottish folk tradition it was said that the Cailleach began her reign of the winter months at Samhain, with Brigid triumphing over her at Imbolc, allowing spring to begin. But it wasn't until March 25th (traditionally associated with the equinox, apparently) that the Cailleach finally gave up her efforts at bringing back the cold weather - after Imbolc the Cailleach was said to roam the fields and streams with her wand, causing frost, and it wasn't until March 25th that she was finally defeated. Some recons who focus on Scottish practises, like myself, add this day to the ritual calendar, but personally I don't go all out as I do with the Cross Quarter days.
