Pagans and Wiccans

By | Dec 18, 2011

Paganism is an umbrella term to describe pagan religions. Wicca is one of those, as is Hellensimos, Asatry and Kemeticism. It is a worship of deities.

Wicca is a practice of witchcraft, but not all witches are Wiccans or even pagan.

There are 8 holidays during the Wiccan, and generally Pagan, year. Those are Samhain (All Hallow’s Eve), Yule (December 25), Imbolc (February 2), Ostara (Spring), Beltane (May Day), Midsummer, Lugnasadl (August 1), and Mabon (Fall).

Pagans and Wiccans do not believe in Satan or the devil. Satan is part of the One Deity faith while Pagan beliefs relate to many Gods.

Wicca is a modern religion having been introduced by Gerald Gardner in 1954 in a published work on witchcraft.

Many of the Christmas Traditions originate through Pagan beliefs and ceremonies that were transformed and/or adopted by Christians.
