Lammas 2010
« on: July 12, 2010, 10:55:35 AM »

I just realized that if all goes well, I will be able to have my Lammas observation on my new deck. What do you do to observe and celebrate the Sabbat?

Last year the Coven baked some home made bread and went and had a picnic at one of the lakes.

Not sure what we're doing this year for it?

I'd have to say that Lammas is one of the holidays that I am least connected to, so I don't do much, if anything to celebrate it.  Since it is so close to our proposed court date, I'd be willing to bet that we will be having a big family adoption celebration the following Friday. (Assuming all goes well :fingerscrossed:)

I've never really connected to it well either.  Which for me means I really should do something to try and connect, but I think it's more likely than not that we'll be too caught up in the crap going on here at home to have the time. :(

My daughter was born August the 1st- so for me its a wonderful double celebration.Lammas, also known as Lughnasadh, Lammastide, Loaf mass-  The first of the Harvest festivals- a time to give thanks for the Abundance from the fields and gardens and to celebrate fertility.
To decorate- I make corn dollies and my altar has fruits and veg representations on it. It is a time of  games like the Highland games- still held in Scotland- showing the strength and prowess of the Warrior, a time for country fairs to show of all the craft wears and the ways of the countrylife, a time to visit the fields, orchards, lakes and wells.
For Spells or Ritual work you could try an Offering of thanks, or honouring fathers, prosperityand abundance Ritual, for continued generosity, and continued success,  and for connectedness.

The deck is done and it's supposed to be hot and dry this weekend. I'm going to do some research and put together a small ritual... Time to hit the books!

If you feel like sharing what you come up with, I could use some inspiration.  :D

I think that just might be the first day that I get to use the pool because it should be done by then.  Floating meditation, here I come.  :tubehorse:
