Who knows about the Wiccan holiday Christmas is retrofitted from?

I was wondering about the Wiccan holiday that took place around the time that many people celebrate Christmas now. I know it has to do with trees and some kind of winter festival but I would like to know more. Please link or tell where you are getting the information from. Thank you.

  1. I do one of my sources are:
    Contact Llewellyn ( William G. Gray)
    PO Box 6438-273, St.Paul, MN 55164-0383,
    USA request the LLewellyn New Times.. Send $1.00 and sase with your request and also ask
    about that Wiccan Holiday!
    You asked where.. You can read the Info! Yourself!

  2. I have been Wiccan for over 20 years.
    Wicca is a new religion of the old gods. At best, Wicca is a religion in it’s second half century. It came after Christianity, not before.
    There are a number of holidays that Christians borrowed to make their Christmas, most falling around the Winter Solstice, a holiday Wiccans and others celebrate.
    I would advocate a websearch on Saturnalia, “Saxon Yule” (and I suggest using the quotation marks,) Bacchanalia, and “Dies Natalis Solis Invicti”
