Happy Lughnasadh!

Today, people around the world give thanks to the harvest and the farmers who work the fields.

The name Lughnasadh comes from the Celtic god Lugh, Lughnasadh being Lugh's Assembly, as it is said he started such a feast day. This day is know as Lammas, or loaf-mas, to Christians and is the church's thanksgiving day.

Harvest something for the coming winter today! And as you break your bread, don't forget to thank the farmers who sowed the seeds that grew into the wheat that was ground into flour and baked in an oven so you can slather it with butter and eat!
