Ritual Dates and Symbols: 2013

This page summarizes significant symbols and dates used by cults and various destructive groups. Each group is different and may celebrate different sets of holidays, placing emphasis on different days. Dates with significance to individual groups, like leaders' birthdays, may also be celebrated. Full and new moons are also significant, particularly so if they fall on any of the main holidays or the survivor's birthday. Those groups that utilize numerology mark dates whose numbers add up to "power numbers" or dates with repeating numbers, such as October 10, 2010 and November 11, 2011.

Please remember that abusive groups steal, pervert and mock the holidays of legitimate religions. This does not mean that all people who observe these holidays are abusive. It is not their fault that abusive groups choose to defile their sacred days.

Other ritual calendars on the Internet are listed at There is a German calendar
