About the event
Lammas is a festival of the first harvest and the beginning of the autumn season. It is celebrated on August 1st in the Northern Hemisphere, and February 1st in the Southern Hemisphere. The Lammas ritual is commonly associated with the gathering of the first grains of wheat, barley, and corn. This ritual marks the start of the harvest season and honors the hard work of farmers and gardeners who have spent months tending to their crops.
During the Lammas ritual, people have traditionally come together to "break bread" and celebrate the abundance of the earth and give thanks for the blessings of the harvest.
Overall, the Lammas ritual is a time for us to reflect on the cycles of nature and the interconnectedness of all living things. It is a reminder to be grateful for the gifts that the earth provides and to honor the hard work of those who tend to the land.
