Lughnasadh, also known as Lughnasa, means β€œthe marriage of Lugh.” It is also known as Lammas, which means β€œloaf mass.” A Northern European and Celtic tradition, today it is celebrated on August 1, when the first grain is cut for the oncoming winter and the first harvest is celebrated. 

Lughnasa is a harvest festival, marking the end of the period of summer growth and the beginning of the autumn harvest. Lughnasa celebrates the fruition of the year’s work with the weaning of calves and lambs, the ripening of corn, and the first apples, pears, bilberries, blackberries, and grapes. An old custom was to pick the first apples and make them into a drink called Lammas Wool.
