Arguably the most important festival of the Druid traditions, due to the great focus on the sun and its light as a symbol of divine inspiration.
Who invented the Wheel of the Year? The modern-day Wheel of the Year was first suggested by the scholar and mythologist Jacob Grimm (1785-1863 CE) in his 1835 CE work, Teutonic Mythology, and fixed in its present form in the 1950s and early ’60s CE by the Wicca movement.
