About Lughnasadh & Lammas

Lammas and Lughnasadh General Meaning

What is Lammas, and why should you enjoy a drink for it? Lammas (also called Lughnasadh) is the first of three harvest holidays of the Wheel of the Year, a cyclical celebration of the seasonal transitions and their magic. It is a time of gratitude, celebration, and blessings. All the seeds that were sown in the beginnings of spring are in the first wave of harvest. Offerings are given to ensure the remaining two harvests are plentiful. In fact, its name hails from “loaf-mass,” a time to celebrate the bounty of the season with food and a Lammas drink! And even in our personal lives, the first signs of the fruits of our labor begin to appear. This is a time of celebration of all the hard work done, that which still remains, and of the waning summer months.

Lammas is also a cross-quarter day, which marks the halfway point between seasons. As a cross-quarter day, Lammas is a time of contemplation, too. What goals remain to be accomplished, before turning inward in the slow descent towards Winter? Now is the perfect time to celebrate bounties earned, those still to come, and to contemplate goals still to accomplish before the end of the year.

While Lughnasadh is traditionally celebrated on August, the true halfway point between the Summer Solstice and Fall Equinox would be when the sun reaches 15 degrees of Leo, which usually happens a week or so later. Which gives you plenty of days to celebrate and drink up some delicious Lammas recipes!
