Let the Chase of Lugh begin! We will follow him through the three harvest festivals of Lughnasadh, Mabon (Autumn Equinox), and then finally Samhain (Halloween).
Lughnasadh is the beginning of the grain harvest, and the harvest season in general. Now is the time to enjoy the fruits of our labor. We give thanks to the Earth for her bounty and beauty. We celebrate with feasts and festivals, fire and bread. We acknowledge the return of the darkness and gather our harvest to see us through the coming winter.
