DEUSA Enterprises, LLC
List Price: $16.00

FROM THE CREATOR:
Since 2010, this unique calendar project has shared photos, news clippings and quotes from Gerald Gardner, Doreen Valiente, Patricia Crowther, Eleanor Bone and Monique Wilson, covering 5 decades of Craft history.

As something special for 2013 (a witchy year indeed!) you may find some photos and articles you have not seen before.  None of the images repeat photos or articles used in previous GBG "Year and a Day" Calendars.

This year includes Lois Bourne, one of GBG's High Priestesses who finds this calendar project a worthwhile idea, and gave the author permission to  include her for 2013.  

Hundreds of Pagan Feast Days are included from cultures around the world to help tailor your own rituals, learn more about specific deities, or to better sense the unique energies of that day.  Full and New Moons are also shown, including the Zodiac sign where the Moon is for that day.

For each calendar sold, a donation will be made to organizations that help preserve Craft history.  Special thanks to the Doreen Valiente Foundation and the Museum of Witchcraft in the UK.  Please help by sharing this page with your friends!
