Also took me awhile to get rid of the guilt complexes as well, but personally, I just never felt comfortable in a church. Some hymns are nice, but I could care less about them really. I do have issues though with me having to sneak and hide to learn anything about Paganism, let alone witchcraft. Makes me sad when I'm over in the Occult section at Barnes & Noble and my sister glaring at me for being there. I honestly could stay at that section all day and the Eastern Religions section if my family wasn't around on book excursions.

Nobody here is going to be offended Jam, we all have our own beliefs - or not as the case may be. I myself have a cousin who calls herself an Atheistic Pagan, she has always had this belief and/or attitude, and I myself am a Heinlein Pagan (sounds better than agnostic...).

Very true Mari, it took me a loooooong time to get rid of guilt complexes related to my cross over from Christianity to Paganism, even though I was never really a true Christian and had backslid many years prior.

Even today I still get an occasional twinge. Churches do make me uncomfortable but it's only me, and hymns make me cringe inside (they always did); I hate hymnal.

Used to believe in God/Gods to say the least. I tried reading on Norse Mythology, i like the symbolism though. But i just imagine all our purpose is to reproduce, but i don't really mind if people wanna practice a religion aslong as its not dominant as a society basics like a theocracy. So sorry if you people think i'm being against people believing just because i gave a theory that prophets may have been seeing things and considered wise, while today they might have been asked to get a doctor or something.

I think its cool that people believe in different things though.

Leryssa, christian upbringing can be difficult to forget or disregard. We are saturated in christianity in the US and many feel uneasy
in certain situations. I can identify with your unease in the bookstore. Sometimes we have to slowly back away and then resolve
our reason for doing so with what we truly believe.

This probably no help ... but for me I celebrate any time there is a reason to get together with friends and family.  As for a time to worship that is a personal and private time for me.  I no longer do Sabbaths and such right now Am still searching.  As for a New year the time most make resolution I personally do that on the day of my birth.  But I follow no special path right now, just my instincts.   

I totally understand the individual path and love hearing about what works for others.  I kind of like the idea of the new year being celebrated on your birthday.   ;D   My instincts are pointing me towards having a little bit of stabilization right now- to rewalk a path that many others have so that maybe I can find some different understanding.

Many charts list both.  Because Samhain and Beltane are reversed in the Southern hemisphere.

I hadn't considered that!... and now I feel silly  :-p

Seems like the vote is generally for Samhain, but that other options are not unheard of.  Thanks for the input!

Oh and...
tolkiens hobbit calender began with yule ;)

(or more specificly yule 2, as yule 1 was the day with which the last year ended)
.... LOL!! That made my day!
