Feast of Lammas or Lugnasadh
Pronounced Lu-na-saa, Lughnasadh was one of the four main festivals of the medieval Irish calendar:Samhain, Imbolc and Beltane.
In the traditional year, August is the time of celebrating Lammas, also known as Lughnasadh. In Celtic times, Lammas signified the celebration of the grain harvest and was a time for tribal gathering, feasting and giving thanks to the land for the early harvest. Lugh is the Corn King or Sun King who dies with the waning year and symbolizes our journey towards the darker months.
In Cornish the festival is known as Gol-Est.
