Do you celebrate 'festivals' regularly, and if yes, what do you celebrate?
Do you refer to a tradition that you follow, to local customs, to the standard 'wheel of the year', to you guts?
I am asking this question because of a discussion that I had with some fellow Italian witches.
Especially the 'reconstructionist' among them, tend to have an approach that totally ditches both the 'standard' wheel of the year and local custom for historical sources. In fact, in many of the documentary evidence we have (coming mainly from Ginzburg), witches would meet four times a year, following the catholic 'tempora' nights. These people are very touchy about it, and seem to favor a literal interpretation of historical documents which sounds very evangelical to me.
I find it weird to strictly follow the catholic liturgical calendar (which is also super-difficult, as the days change every year), and a bit anachronistic for a tradition that claims to be 100% 'authentic'. It's also weird, because they end up celebrating the spring tempora day when most of Italy is still cold and in winter.
Personally, I go along with the customs of the place where I was born, and where my main spiritual 'help' comes from (although this is changing a bit, which I didn't expect).
It got me curious about how you go through all this, and what approach you follow, if you do at all.
