Lughnasadh (also known as Lammas) is an ancient Celtic summer festival held to celebrate the first harvest intake. It is one of the pagan festivals which split the year into four Celtic fire festivals: Imbolc, Bealtaine, Lughnasadh und Samhain, and like the other three, is thought to mark the first day of each season. One of these days is Lughnasadh, marking the beginning of fall. Its celebration takes place on the 1st of August, a date internationally agreed upon, or on the day of the full moon next to this date, if you want to celebrate when the ancient Celts probably did.
The meaning of Lughnasadh on a more “soul-oriented” perspective, is the start of the harvest of the fruits that we have sown in spring, and it usually leads to deep self-reflective questions like: which projects am I growing in my life at the moment? What will I be reaping? Have I planted the seeds of new ideas? Did I prepair a new fresh terrain for the projects to come? Am I ready to face the winter?
The essence of Lughnasadh is the enjoying of the last months of sun and warmth, knowing that the colder days are moving in. How will I spend the short and cold days in the winter time? How will I keep my connection to the outside world, to nature and to other people?
