Lughnasadh (Lammas) On or around July 31st Northern Hemisphere, around February 2nd Southern Hemisphere


The Sabbat Lughnasadh, known also as Lammas, is named for Lugh - Celtic God of light and fire, and marks the decline of summer and first harvest of the grain. The Sun's strength wanes, and the plants of spring now start to wither and drop their fruits or seeds for our use, as well as to ensure future crops. As legend tells, John Barleycorn or the God of Grain, sacrificed himself to ensure there would be enough food throughout the winter. Here we give thanks for the abundance of summer's bounty, at the very time we feel an urgency to prepare for the hard months ahead.
