Lammas, or Lughnasadh, depending on your tradition and preference, is the first of three harvest festivals, and one of four fire festivals, from ancient Celtic traditions and beliefs. This first harvest is the harvest of grains, and we can see the fruits of the union between the God and Goddess. The word Lammas comes from the Old English word hlāfmæsse, meaning “loaf mass”, and is highly connected to the harvesting of the grains and the feasts prepared at Lammas. Traditionally, this day was celebrated with the harvesting of the first grains and a feast. The ancient peoples that celebrated this festival knew the importance, though, and we can try to get back to that.
