The Celtic / Wiccan calendar It is one of the oldest ritual calendars known and is based on light and dark, on the cycles of the moon, the sun, and vegetation. Each month corresponded to a lunar cycle that began with the new moon. For the Celts, the day began and ended with the sunset, existing like the Gregorian calendar, twelve months that corresponded with the seasons of the year. Six dark months from November to April and six light months from May to October. The year began with the month of Samonians, that is, forty days after the autumnal equinox. Being based on the cycles of the sun and the moon, not all years had the same number of months, to compensate, they interspersed other 30-day months every two and a half years
