As the harvest season begins, we celebrate Tailtiu, an Irish queen and goddess of the Earth and Harvest, whose foster son Lugh, the god of Blacksmiths, fulfilled her request that funerary games be peacefully held in her honor. In return, Tailtiu promised an abundant harvest. The Lammas festival/feast/games were first held on August1, 1420 BC.
Lammas is a good time to honor the cycle of life, death, and rebirth of crops, and to reflect upon what we have personally sown, reaped, and released in our lives.
