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.

2021 Ritual Calendar

This page summarizes significant dates used by various cults and destructive groups. 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.

Groups may celebrate different sets of holidays or place more or less 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 February 20, 2020.

Note: Additional information on the following holidays is available at:
