Safety Notice

If you are a survivor, please be careful in reading the information compiled here. It is impossible to give information on ritual abuse, and about people's opinions about ritual abuse, in a way that is not upsetting and/or triggering. Only you know how much is wise to read, and how much information you can absorb at one time.

This page summarizes significant dates and symbols used by various cults and destructive groups. For most survivors, the worst symbols and dates are among those on this page.
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.
Each group is different and may celebrate different sets of holidays, placing emphasis on different days. Dates with significance to individual groups, such as leaders’ birthdays, may also be celebrated. Full and new moons are significant in some cults, particularly if they fall on any of the main holidays or on 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.
Christian, Eastern Orthodox, Jewish, Hindu, Islamic, and Thelemic holidays are listed separately, after the Satanic ritual calendar. Days that might be significant in Australia, Germany, Mexico, New Zealand, South Africa, The Netherlands, and the United Kingdom follow. A section on symbols is at the very end.
