The Gaelic year is broken up into four quarters, with each quarter starting at the beginning of a new season. Each festival traditionally falls on the 1st of the month, with celebrations starting the preceding evening. In many areas, instead of a fixed calendar date, the festival is held based on changes in the weather and landscape - such as first frost, or the blooming of the hawthorn trees. Additional festivals are also observed in most areas, based on the local spirits and history, or the tutelary deities of an extended family and community.
