Creating your own Lammas/Lughnasadh Customs

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is a time of fairs and the last month before school starts so create some customs to remember and even pass along… Enjoy a country fair, enter the baking contest or just go to remember what it was like for our ancestors. Fairs for them was a time to get together have some fun before the real hard work of the next 2 months of harvesting had to be completed.
Learn to bake fresh bread if you have never done it check out some of the recipes on this blog they are easy to follow. I will repost some easy bread recipes on here in the next few days after all this is the grain harvest. Freshly baked bread is a staple of this Sabbat.
Visit a Farm that allows you to pick your vegetables fresh or visit your local farmers market. Even though we can get our food out of season try your hand at canning or making jelly, it can be a very rewarding experience. Imagine opening a jar of jelly with no artificial preservatives or a jar of fruit that you prepared for your family with only natural ingredients.
If that sounds like too much work try your hand at decorating your space with sun symbols and gourds or create an original game that you can enjoy with family and friends as you enjoy the final day of summer
