Blessed Lughnasadh.

And so the wheel turns once more. It is the time of year where we celebrate Lughnasadh, or Lammas.  It’s the first of the harvest festivals and a time to reflect on what has happened during the year. It is a time to give thanks, to start preparing for the long, dark nights ahead.

Traditions at this time are baking bread, making corn dollies, sacrificing the corn – or John Barleycorn – by cutting down the corn.  Worshipping the God Lugh who surrenders his life at this time.
