This is a always developing calendar with important days to remember for Pagan Memory and with the themes we deal with across the months. Here you won't find any Pagan festival, since there are many calendars about them, also available on the Internet
To make order among the several activities for the European Pagan Memory Day project, we established to count a Pagan Memory Year. Our Pagan Memory Year begins on the 24th February, with the European Pagan Memory Day so assuming the meaning of the beginning of the reconstruction, and ends on the 15th February, a year later, the day on which the last pagan fire in Europe was estinguished in Lithuania. Between one year and the next one there are some 'dark' days, dedicated to consideration, silence and preparation, similar to that period of thinking and purification that many ancient populations put in their calendars before the beginning of a new year.
January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, December.
