Lammas is the first harvest festival in the wheel of the year. It falls on the same day as Llugnasadh; August 1. I love celebrating the festivals on the wheel of the year, they connect me to histories we share & to the turning of the seasons.
Lammas & Lugnasadh are first fruit festivals, in older times they marked the end of the hungry gap. Lammas was the Saxon Loaf Mass & Llugnasadh was the the Celtic first fruit festival.
If you like you can join me for a free online celebration & ritual on Sunday August 1st at 7pm. It will last for about 20 minutes & I will tell you a little more about the story of the festival & we can sing and enjoy the moment together. Typically folk from all over the world join in these celebrations as Cunning Folk can be anyone from anywhere.
