Lammas, the First Harvest

Lammas is the first of three Pagan harvest festivals, and takes place on August 1, right around the time of the early grain harvests.

Lammas, also called Lughnasadh, falls at the beginning of the harvest season. Apples are ready and grain is beginning to ripen. It's also a day for honoring Lugh, the Celtic craftsman god. Celebrate by baking a Lammas Bread Man, and having a Bread Sacrifice Ritual.
