Witchcraft to Go:
July: Sothis to Lammas Eve
July was named after the Roman Emperor Julius Caesar.
Pagan Festivals and Holy Days in July
Previously called Quinctilis, or the fifth month (after March), July was re-named by the Romans in honour of their Emperor Julius Caesar.
The Anglo-Saxon name for July is believed to have been Aeftera Litha, or alternatively Maedmonat, meaning 'meadow month'. The modern Asatru name for this month is Haymoon.
Salem was marked by the mass execution of five women.
