Lammas or Lughnasadh

Occurs on on 1st August, although some celebrations happen on 31st July and 2nd August, or more recently the Sunday closest to the 1st. Lammas is an Anglo-Saxon word meaning loaf-mass, or bread, and the most commonly-used name for this sabbat. This is a time to celebrate the First Harvest; the first grains and the first fruits, but primarily this is a grain festival. Lammas is the first of the three harvest sabbats and a celebration of the Earth’s fertility. Corn, wheat, potatoes and other crops harvested around Lammas are considered fertility plants and can be used within Lammas rituals.

Altar: Include ripened wheat or barley ears in any floral decorations, or make a corn doll. You can also bake some Lammas Bread and use it in a protection spell. In the old days, the Lammas bread once baked would be broken into four pieces and placed in each corner of the barn to protect the harvested crops. In your spell you can break the bread into four pieces and place it in the corners of your home instead and work it into your protection spell.
