Lammas – A Time To Celebrate and Reflect

2 February – Lammas is celebrated in the Southern Hemisphere.

Lammas – also known as Lughnasadh – is a Greater Sabbat – the first harvest feast. The first harvest is done, the last sheaf of wheat gathered. It marks the end of the summer growing period and the beginning of the autumn harvest.

This is a time for gathering together celebrating and enjoying the fruits of your labours – to look back and reflect on achievements and successes of the past year.

But it is also a time for gathering the seed in readiness for next season – ensuring new life.

Celebrate this night with a feast of home made bread, lots of fruit, prawns (harvest of the sea), beer, cider and wine.

 

Lammas blessings!
