Lughnasadh (Lughnasa) also know as Lammas is one of the 8 Wiccan Sabbats that make up the pagan Wheel of the Year. It is the first of the three harvest festivals and marks the beginning of the dark part of the year. This magickal celebration is dedicated to the god Lugh (pronounced Loo) and is celebrated by reaping the first fruits of our harvest. Corn and wheat are some of the first crops to be harvested at this time and serve as symbols of this Sabbat. In honor of this, breads are traditionally baked and corn dolls are crafted. Lammas means “loaf mass”.
