Sabbats, or wiccan festivals, are celebrated by witches throughout the year. The four major sabbats are Samhain, Imbolc, Beltane and Lammas, and the four minor sabbats are Yule, Ostara, Lither and Mabon. These make up the wheel of enchantment, or a more define way of putting it " wheel of the year".
Besides sabbats witches also celebrate esbats. Esbats are full moon rituals, which most witches will invoke the charge of the goddess. There is a spell in this chapter for beginners to learn how to draw down the blessings of the moon. Below is a table of the eight sabbats and what dates they are held.

Esbats; are celebrated 13 times in one year. You should celebrate each Esbat to receive blessings from the goddess. Drawing down the moon is quiet simple and is done to rid of any negative energy that may lurk inside you.
This is my favorite time of the year. Samhain also known as Halloween, it is a time when we can communicate with the spirit world beast.
