Circle of the Earth Celebration of Lughnasadh
Lughnasadh (also known as Lammas) is the celebration of the first harvest of the year. It is the name of one of the eight sabbats in the wheel of the year. Summer solst ice is the height of summer whereas Lammas is the start of autumn. The later autumn harvest festivals are the autumn equinox and Samhain which marks the end of the season. Lammas takes place each year between the 1st August and the 1st September.
This years celebration will take place on Saturday, August 4, 7PM, at the church. Weather permitting, we will be outside! You may wish to bring a chair or blanket to sit on, and a dish to share at the pot luck following the ritual.
ALL ARE WELCOME!!!
