The ancient peoples of the Earth celebrated the seasons by paying close attention to the skies above them, especially at night, when clear, and observation was undertaken.
The Celts were particularly aligned in all aspects of their lives, with the precession of the Equinoxes and the timing of the seasons.
It is only patriarchal religions that have enforced a sense of, and adherence to, Linear Time.
The Gregorian Calendar is an example of this.
Solstices, Equinoxes and Cross Quarter days, such as Imbolc, were of great importance to ancient people for regulating their time.
The knowledge of when to plant, when to harvest, when to stay and when to move was imperative to the well-being of the Tribe.
The Celts named the cross quarters Imbolc, Bealtaine, Lughnasad and Samhain.
