 Autumn is coming!
August 1 was Lammas Day (loaf-mass day), the festival of the first wheat harvest of the year. On this day it was customary to bring to church a loaf made from the new crharvestop. In many parts of England, tenants were bound to present freshly harvested wheat to their landlords on or before the first day of August. In the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, where it is referred to regularly, it is called "the feast of first fruits". The blessing of new fruits was performed

Lughnasadh (or Lammas) is a Gaelic holiday celebrated on the full moon nearest the midpoint between the summer solstice and autumnal equinox, during the time of the harvesting. No fixed calendar date could exist because the Celtic calendar was based on the lunar, solar, and vegetative cycles. Lugnasadh was one of the four main festivals of the medieval Irish calendar: Imbolc, Beltaine, Lughnasadh and Samhain. Lughnasadh marked the beginning of the harvest season and was therefore a festival of celebrating Mother Earth and the abundance of nature, a festival of plenty and prosperity that heralds the coming of Autumn. Lughnasadh translates as "Lughs wedding" and was dedicated to Lugh, a Sun God of Celtic mythology. Lughnasadh festivals last from 15 July until 15 August.

Ideas for Celebrating the Harvest

Have a magical picnic and break bread with friends.

Do a meditation in which you visualize yourself completing a project you have already begun.

Make a corn dolly charm out of the first grain you harvest or acquire.

Bake a sacred loaf bread and give a portion of it to Mother Earth with a prayer of appreciation.

Make prayers for a good harvest season.

Do prosperity magic.

Harvest herbs in a sacred way for use in charms and rituals.

Kindle a Lammas fire with sacred wood and dried herbs.

If you live in or near a farming region, attend a public harvest festival, such as a corn or apple festival.

New Look!


Thanks to Rob Carlos who did the window paint, and Amy Brown who provided the use of her artwork, our store may be just a little bit easier for you to find. That's not all that is new, if you haven't looked at our website lately check it out at www.crescentmoongifts.com. I have completely reworked the design to be more of an all inclusive "store away from store". The shopping aspect is still being added to, but you can check out pics, read what people are saying, find an event that's happening or listen to me chat in the blog area. I'd love to have your feedback and I always welcome your suggestions, afterall this is YOUR store!
