Hi Lily,

There is an excellent website that discusses the history of the various Sabbats and offers some suggestions as to how to celebrate them, and why we celebrate them at

And here's some books that I'd suggest that give a lot of suggestions for ways to celebrate:

"Circle Round" by Starhawk

"Celebrating the Seasons of Life: Beltane to Mabon" by Ashleen O'Gaea "Celebrating the Seasons of Life: Samhain to Ostara" by Ashleen O'Gaea

"Eight Sabbats for Witches" by Janet and Stewart Farrar

"Wheel of the Year: Living the Magical Life" by Pauline Campanelli and Dan Campanelli

The next Sabbat that we'll be celebrating is Beltane which falls on the night of 4/30/2014, so that might be a good one to start making plans for.

each one has a specific story, purpose, and ritual, research them all, but the next one is Beltane, so focus on that one, then move on to the next as the wheel turns. [For Beltane my coven usually has a picnic] its a celebration of the God and Goddesses wedding, so think about wedding parties and what emotions surround them. [The good, not the in-laws fighting] its also a time for young lovers and many have their handfastings around this time. Dancing around the Maypole is another common activity [though how many solitaries own one of those?] I personally feel Beltane is one of those you should celebrate with others, so if possible try to throw a party, or look into a local gathering on that day [if you are aloud to attend, I don't want to tell a minor to go hang with strangers after all]

If you're by yourself though, go for a walk in the woods, speak with the Lord and Lady, make them a wedding gift as an offering, stuff like that.
