I think I have posted this before. But what, if anything, is anyone doing on these boards for Lammas Day? It is today, in case you don’t know. August 1, 2018.
First, a little background. It is the blessing of the first fruits. It is also roughly equidistant between the Summer Solstice and the Autumnal Equinox. I think I first heard about it in a book of neopagan Wicca, if not before. It is one of the eight “cross-quarter” days, Cecil Adams talks about (although I have never been able to find the column in which he says that [little help:)?]).
And FWIW, Google at least, thinks it’s a big deal.
What do the rest of you think? And while we’re at it, does anyone here celebrate it? It is a Christian festival (“Lammas” is actual a corruption of “Loaf-mass”–get it?).
