Lammas is a celebration of the bounty of the first harvest of all grains, fruits, and vegetables. It is one of the cross-quarter Sabbaths and is the first of the three harvest celebrations of the Pagan wheel of the year.
Throughout history, Pagan worshippers all over have celebrated their bountiful harvests on this day and offered prayers and sacrifices for the success of future crops. Today, this holiday is still celebrated by many around the world as it marks the end of summer and the welcoming of autumn.
