Our celebration Lughnasadh, also known as Lammas, Festival of First Fruits is the first of three Harvest Festivals. As summer draws to an end, her bounty is ripe for gathering. The first loaves of bread are baked from this year’s grains. Fruits are waiting to be canned or made into pies and jams and while the weather is good, people come together at County Fairs which mimic the Lughnasadh Fairs of Ancient Celtic times.
Look at the beauty of this ritual altar with the fresh fruits and veggies and the baked bread. I love the array of colors.
It is good to give thanks for our life, our blessing, our harvest. Blessed Be
