Classical inaccuracies. There's quite a difference in secular and religious holiday observances.
BTW Just so you know, the dates on those "holidays" actually vary by the astrological times they fall, just like "Easter" does.
Samhain: Sun is at 15° Scorpio
Yule: Sun is at 1° Capricorn
Imbolc: Sun is at 15° Aquarius
Ostara: Sun is at 1° Aries
Beltaine: Sun is at 15° Taurus
Litha: Sun is at 1° Cancer
Lammas: Sun is at 15° Leo
Mabon: Sun is at 1° Libra
