Art that caught my eye:Lughnasadh

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 30, 2010, 2:52 PM
The turning of the wheel now brings us to Lughnasadh 31st July- 1st August,named in honour of the Celtic god Lugh, a name which means “light” or “shining.” Although somewhat confusing, we are not celebrating the death of Lugh but rather the funeral games that Lugh hosted to commemorate the death of his foster mother, Taillte.
Celts held the festival of the Irish god Lugh at this time and later, the Anglo-Saxons marked the festival of hlaefmass - loaf mass or Lammas - at this time.This was the first day of the harvest, when the fields would be glowing with corn and reaping would begin. The harvest period would continue until Samhain when the last stores for the winter months would be put away.
