Lughnasadh is Coming

This month starts the beginning of our march to Lughnasadh, here at Pagandad. But what exactly is Lughnasadh? A teacher, when explaining the Sabbats, explained this and the next two Sabbats as one word Harvest. This Harvest specifically being the one of the Grain. 

It was at this time that our Ancestors begin to cut the barley and other grain from the fields. To them this was called corn, what we call corn was called maize. So at this time John BarleyCorn was honored and represented in the fields. This was also a time that they gathered to tell stories and give thanks for the things that they had received in the past year. So as we go forward from here this will be my focus.

In other news, as some of you on Facebook may know I have talked lately about making some sweeping changes to the format of this blog. Some of these changes will be this month and more in the months to come. For this month I am planning many articles in addition to the normal Sabbat related material. So I hope you will bear with me as I find what new things work and what doesn't. And like always I really appreciate any feedback you can give me. Let me know what works and what doesn't, whether by comment or by email.

Blessed Be!tfr
