The calendar of saints is a traditional Christian method of organizing a liturgical year by associating each day with one or more saints and referring to the day as the feast day or feast of said saint. Feast Days of Patron Saints are associated with days of the year and referred to as the Patron Saint’s Feast Day. The word “feast” does not refer to a meal, but instead “an annual religious celebration, a day dedicated to a particular saint”.

The feast days began during Christian custom of commemorating martyrs on the dates of their deaths and at the same time celebrating their birth into heaven. Feast days are often marked by those who consider a certain saint as patron. In the case of a national patron, the feast day may be a public holiday.

As the number of recognized saints increased, eventually every day of the year had at least one saint who was commemorated on that date. To deal with this increase, some saints were moved to alternate days in some traditions, or completely removed, with the result that some saints have different feast days in different calendars.

While Saint Days may seem out of place on a pagan calendar, it actually is not. There are a surprising number of rituals and spell workings associated with particular saints and their feast days.  The Saint days that are of interest here, are listed below in alphabetical order and linked to their respective information.
