Lughnasadh

Lughnasadh (or Lunasa in Modern Irish) occurs about August 1st in the Northern Hemisphere. This festival marked the beginning of the grain harvest, and included sacrifices to petition for a bountiful season.

Falling six months opposite the winter festival of Imbolc, Lughnasadh is conversely at the middle of summer, a festival of the light half of the year, and with more masculine activities such as large regional outdoor gatherings, trade, games, law making, and forums.

Druidry

“It’s an attitude, an understanding, an exquisitely simple and natural philosophy of living. For a great many it is a rich and ancient religion, a mystical spirituality. For others it’s simply a guiding way of life. It is absolutely open and free for anyone to discover.”
Remma Restall Orr, Druid Priestess, 2000
