Lughnasadh, also called Lammas, is the Celebration of
Harvest and begins what is called "the chase of Lugh".
Lugh is the Celtic Sun God and He grows within the
crops, living within the golden fields. This is the time of
the first harvests. At this celebration we give thanks to
the Earth for its bounty and beauty. It is from these
harvests that we eat through the upcoming winter.
Honoring the God Lugh, games and sports are played to
celebrate strength and good health. The grain Goddesses
Demeter and Ceres are also honored. This is a time to
harvest the dreams planted earlier in the year.
