3 Reasons To Celebrate Lammas on Friday

lammas blessingThere are three major reasons why all of us – pagan and non-pagan, should celebrate this holiday.  Lammas celebrates the harvest, particularly of wheat.  It occurs in the Northern Hemisphere this coming Friday, August 1.

1. Gratitude is Good.

The more we give thanks for what we have, the more the Universe responds with more!  It’s very simple.  Acknowledging the many gifts in our lives fills us with a feeling of abundance.

2. Getting Together

Celebrate this holiday with loved ones and friends.  Lammas is a great time to enjoy summer’s end and just have fun.  A picnic, a candlelight dinner, canning your fruits and veggies – it doesn’t matter how you do it, but giving thanks and laughing with loved ones always brings joy.

3. Gathering In

Lammas reminds us that winter is coming, and it’s time to prepare for dark nights ahead.  Preparation and acceptance of the coming cold gives warmth to you now!

At my celebration there will, of course, be lots of bread.  Last year we celebrated with simple tomato sandwiches and blueberry cobbler (and a little mead, of course!).  Whatever your plans, take this evening to offer thanks for your many blessings.

Blessed be,

Deb

    I would like to ask how did you know you were a witch? I don’t know if I am a witch but I feel a strong relationship with the earth and nature. I am very concerned about Climate Change. I grew up on a farm and spent a lot of time walking woody paths with my dog. I like this kind of spirituality. I was raised Presbyterian, learning that what happens is predestined. Am I a witch?

      Hi Katie,
      I can’t answer your question because to be a witch means many things to many people. I’d suggest your read and study the history of witchcraft, and the various forms it’s taken over the centuries. There are many definitions of the word. Generally, however, I’d suggest your start with the concept of Paganism and work from there in your research.
      Blessings,
      deb
