A Happy Lughnasadh to Everyone!

Summer has passed its zenith and although temperatures are still quite warm (in the Northern Hemisphere), the sun sets a bit earlier each day.  Some crops are ready to harvest and preserve for the coming cold months.

Lughnasadh, named for the Irish Sun God Lugh, is celebrated on the first or second day of August.  It is the first of three harvest festivals.  This festival celebrates the grain harvest as well as fruits and vegetables that ripen in late Summer.  A perfect time to try a new bread recipe, dry herbs, preserve fruits and veggies!

Besides giving thanks for the abundance of the first harvest, this is a good time to reflect on the goals and projects you began earlier in the year. Have they come to fruition as you planned? Or do they still need more work to develop into what you envisioned? There is still time to edit and revise before the next harvest!

  1. As it is the first grain harvest I like to make oat cakes for breakfast. A picnic would also be fun. I also like to reflect on whatever projects I began this year and mark progress or lack thereof ๐Ÿ™‚ Then I can revise or improve the course of action.


  2. Thanks for reminding me! Husband and I just acquired a Wiccan Wheel of the Year as we are trying to celebrate more of the seasons than holidays. I think we shall discuss our projects and goals over a glass of wine. Happy Lughnasadh!
