Lughnasadh (pronounced loo’nass’ah) is a harvest festival that derives from Old Gaelic and falls about halfway through summer solstice and autumn equinox.
Pagans celebrate at a time when traditionally the first crops were ready to harvest. The celebration includes the ritual cutting and offering of the first grain, making the first meal and the ritual eating of the meal.
It is also known as Lammas (“loaf mass”) from early English celebrations around harvest time.Sources: 8 Facts to Know about Lughnasadh, Pagan Harvest Festival by HuffPost.com; Lughnasadh by Druidry.org
