Wheel of the Year and Sabbats – Lesson 11

The answers for most of these questions can be found on the Witches of The Craft’s and Coven Life’s websites. For more information about any of the topics please search the internet.

I want all answers to be written in your own words and not words copied and pasted from websites. For the individual sabbats I would like to know a brief history, the date they are celebrated, which gods and goddesses are associated with them, brief explanation of the rituals done on them, and how else they are celebrated.
