Happy Lammas!


I would just like to wish everyone a happy Lammas which is celebrated on Tuesday, Aug. 1 this year.

Lammas is a late summer holiday, sort of to start winding things of a summery nature and to look forward to the Fall equinox on September 21.

So if anyone out there is of the Old Religion, then Happy Lammas. And if you aren't Happy Lammas anyhow! emoticon

Happy, a what? Sorry, but I've never heard of it, Lights. emoticon

This time of the year when I used to live up in Oregon, I always looked forward to the Josephine County Fair, and the acts that came there to perform. As well as the Mountain Man Rendezvous, for which we went there dressed in mid-1800s costumes, to watch the powder gun shoots and tomahawk tossing.

I also looked forward to seeing my friend and her husband at the rendezvous. She sold a wide variety of period costume patterns that I loved to sift through and/or buy from her. She, you see--is a costumer, who not only sews by hand her own costumes...she is also seen working on her next awesome project too.

Today, my joy of sewing has gone completely out the window. emoticon There's no more joy in it anymore.

Lammas is an older Pagan holiday that celebrated the Harvest. It came in August because in much of old Europe, the growing season was shorter than it is these days.

Re: Happy Lammas!


And then comes Samhain, which is the old Celtic New Year when we remember those who have passed on. This is the basis of Halloween. The Catholic Church set November 1 as All Saint's Day (All Hallows) and since Samhain is celebrated the night of October 31, it became known also as All Hallow's Eve and thus shorten of Halloween. Many of the customs of Halloween were taken from the old Samhain feast, such as Jack o'lanterns.
