Wiccans celebrate 8 holidays, called sabbats.
The sabbats are spaced at approximately equal intervals throughout the year.

In order, those 8 sabbats are as follows, going by their original names:
1. febuary eve, 2. the spring equinox, 3. may eve, 4. the summer solstice,
5. august eve, 6. the autumn equinox, 7. november eve, 8. the winter solstice.

Some time in the 1950s, Gerald Gardner renamed febuary eve to Candlemass,
renamed august eve to Lammas, and renamed november eve to Halloween.

Other, later wiccans have made additional alterations to the sabbat names.
Five of the sabbats often have their names changed to those of the neo-druidic holidays
that the wiccan sabbats were based upon.
Those five druidic names are Imbolc, Beltane, Lughnasad, Samhain, and Yule.
