Wishing Everyone a Happy Lughnasadh!

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. Wishing you a Happy Lughnasadh too! My project needs more work – editing and revising. Lovely piece that makes me ready for fall, but we have to get through hurricane season first. All clear in the Gulf but dust from the Sahara Desert arrived for the weekend. Not too bad as the plume is mostly up very high. Have a good Sunday!

  2. Are they magic pumpkins? They look magic! Pumpkins are often mistaken as a vegetable but they are actually a fruit. I love pumpkin soup, we had some last week, but my favorite is roast pumpkin – skin on of course πŸ˜€ Happy Lughnasadh, may your harvest be plentiful.
