POC Witch Harvest Season Aesthetic 🍞🌾✨

Lammas is the Anglo-Saxon word for the season. It means “loaf-mass". Lughnasadh or Lughnasa is the Gaelic name for the season, named after the sun god, Lugh. 

Being neither of  Anglo-Saxon or Gaelic origin, I simply call this August 1 holiday Harvest Season when we celebrate the first fruits or harvest of the season. It’s a great time for hearth and kitchen magick and of course, eating! As we prepare wheat and corn for breads and jar berries and fruits for preserves, we take this time to reflect on regrets and goodbyes and on the flip side, of harvests and preserves since the start of the year.
