Congratulations on the upcoming holiday - with Beltane, Walpurgis Night. Perhaps someone might think that it's late, it was May 1st. The point here is this: many people know that equinoxes and solstices fall on different days each year - this depends on many factors, primarily due to the fact that the calendar year (365 or 366 days in a leap year) does not coincide with the solar year
(~365.24 days), but 4 other holidays from "Wheel of the Year
" are traditionally celebrated on specific days of the Gregorian calendar:
If someone needs to know the time and day of any sunny holiday in the coming years - you can always see it here.
I’ll say right away that the dates and times of the moment of holidays are indicated absolutly correct here only for 2021, it is a model for calculations here, and in other years the error can reach half an hour - due to the fact that the duration of a tropical year is not constant (the planets influence, the processes on the Sun, and a lot more then
). In any case, it is interesting that many solar holidays are now celebrated in accordance with the Christian calendar not in the correct days, not at all when it should be:
, Walpurgis Night
(and possibly modern Labor Day) in our time fall on May 5-6, and not 1.
(and possibly Perun's Day and Day of the Airborne Forces) in the solar time on August 6-7, and not 2.
(and probably Christian Day of All Saints) are astronomically held on November 6-7, and not 1.
, Groundhog Day
(and hence the Roman Day of the Hedgehog) - February 3-4, not 2.
Probably, such a difference, in ~ 5 days, with these pre-Christian holidays can be associated with changes in the orbit or size of the Earth in recent centuries, or the force of attraction of objects around the Earth - this is not certain, you can only build hypotheses here.
In any case, according to the Sun - Beltane and Walpurgis Night this year will occurs on May 6 at 06:42 UTC+0. Congratulations again!
