On the ancient pagan holiday of Lughnasadh (also known as Lammas), let’s celebrate the nourishing sustenance Mother Earth provides for us every single day.
Halfway between the Summer Solstice and the Fall Equinox, Lughnasadh is a cross-quarter day and the first of three harvest festivals. (Yay! It’s harvest festival season!)
Lugh (for whom the day is named) is the Celtic god of light, brightness, illumination, inspiration, and the sun. His consort is the nature goddess Rosmerta, and you can feel the bright fullness of the sun shining his warmth on the earth, bringing forth all kinds of sweet and nourishing sustenance for us to enjoy.
This makes Lughnasadh an excellent time to heal your relationship with food, and to honor the abundant bounty the earth constantly provides for us.
