What is your favorite sabbat and how do you celebrate it with your family? My favorite sabbat is Yule and Midsummer. Every Yule we have a feast, offer thanks to the Goddess, have a couple of games and exchange of presents. For Midsummer,my family would go on a picnic to celebrate.

My favourite would have to be Samhain...I've always loved Hallowe'en as a kid, so I suppose the interests followed. I usually do a general 'respect' type of ritual, along with a standardized sabbat/esbat ritual. I also enjoy Litha, which my friends and I are going down to Salem to celebrate this year!! I CANNOT wait!!! It's this massive thing each year, they usually go for Yule as well, but we shall see where everyone is by December I suppose...LOL

How amazing to find a Philippine Wicca follower.... it's really great! I know that Philippines is a very Christian country, like Italia, the country in which I live. Well, once I always celebrated sabbats with my friends, but now that my son is so young I have no time to go in a far town to celebrate them like once. I remember a Beltane particularly gorgeous, we did really a beautiful celebration, we were a lot of people and everything was very good.

In truth I love them all..though if I had to pick favorites it'd probably be Ostara and Midsummer's..even though Samhain's probably the most meaningful to me personally. My family and I usually don't celebrate together..heh, I almost wish we did. Ostara's always so jayous..planting starts, chores outside..the spring rains start..which I love so much. Spring cleaning kinda turns into a kind of party for me. I usually write songs lol as my main thing, to honor the Goddess and celebrate her about to give lfe back to our earth's kind of an reawakening time, every year I do something different. ^_^ But it's one of the few sabbats I can celebrate with my best friend -- even though she's not pagan or anything, she loves the vernal equinox and celebrates it every year. Midsummer I usually go get closer to nature. I'll go for a walk in the forest..and just talk to it, feel the energy to it. Imagining the wild hunt lol. I'll start a campfire..make and bring snacks..and it's one of the few times I'll dance.. I suppose every sabbat and esbat's a party for me..I don't go part way in the celebrating lol.

My favourite sabbat would be Lughnasah because it happens to be my birthday too :D The celebration of Lughnasah begins at sunset and I was born at sunset too so I guess I always think of Lughnasah as a special day for me. The first thing I always do when I wake up that day would be singing "Happy Birthday To Me" LOL

I love each one- but I love weather and each one signals a change in the weather. It all but slipped my mind that Beltane is coming- and Its such a good day. blessed be
