What are the four pagan festivals? Four of the festivals have Celtic origins and are known by their Celtic names, Imbolc, Beltane, Lughnasadh and Samhain. The other four are points in the solar calendar.

Among the sabbats, it is the second of the three Pagan harvest festivals, preceded by Lammas / Lughnasadh and followed by Samhain.
What does the Bible say about pagan holidays? He condemns these heathen customs, these “doctrines of vanities” (verse 8). In many other scriptures, God forbids learning and copying the practices of pagans (e.g. Leviticus 18:2-4; 20:22-24). Clearly, He does not want people keeping pagan festivals and traditions, even if they put Christ’s name on them.
Is Christmas a pagan holiday? Though December 25 is the day Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the date itself and several of the customs we’ve come to associate with Christmas actually evolved from pagan traditions celebrating the winter solstice.
