Sorry I am a few days late posting my Lammas celebration .
Lammas / loaf mass is a time of graititude like Thanksgiving & for me a time of sharing & giving . Like many pagan holidays such as Thanksgiving & All Hallows eve Lammas was adopted by the Christian communities .
Although when watching Victorian Farm they stated that many churches stopped this celbration as it became very rowdey and loud due to the large consumption of first harvest of spirits ;-)
The readings for Loaf Mass day was that of the multipling of loaves & fishes .To me this is so much better a celebration then the civic holiday we have here in Canada .
This is a time of beginning harvest for us in our country
we pick many flowers
medicinal & spiritual such as sweetgrass
it is also the beginning of the canning season
sharing our abundance with others such as in the reading where rather than send people away we are willing to share and give .
such as sage bundles
and of course pickles !
there are many beautiful options to give & share with others for this we are most Grateful
