    That's beautiful! Do you mind if I use it (substituting my heritage of course). Your words are great

    About my username: It's after a little wooded area i hang out in, near a church called Zion. Later i found out the word "Zionwood" may have political implications, but that wasn't my intent at all when i picked it.

    I didn't do anything. I was too tired from going to Relay for Life the day before.
    Um, I did make some blueberry muffins a few days later. From a mix.

    bumpin' it up

    Happy Lammas! I figured this was a good time to bump this thread up. Are you celebrating Lammas this year? And if so, how?
    Myself, i'm saying the Rosary (Luminous Mysteries, which include the Transfiguration, traditionally celebrated Aug. 6) on the 11th and possibly the 4th (since they are Thursdays, the day of the week to say the Luminous mysteries.) Also doing a little private ritual on the 6th or 7th, and probably visiting a local hill on the 6th since Lammas/Lughnasa celebrations traditionally take place on mountains (like in Ireland, and i am part Irish.) Also, modern-day state fairs are evidently a descendant of Lammas fairs, and the one in my state is in August so i plan to go to that and see it as a modern-say Lammas celebration. Kind of exciting! Furthermore for the next couple days i will be someplace with a cornfield so i'll see i can do a little personal observance there.
    For those in the southern hemisphere, happy Imbolc. here's the (Christian witch) Imbolc thread: http://mysticwicks.com/showthread.ph...olc-Candlemass

    Lammas is always one of those holidays that seems to smeak up on me, and I have nothing planned, or I forget about it entirely! I tend to use this page as inspiration for my celebrations. I like the association of the Eucharist with the older image of John Barleycorn. I also adore the Feast of the Transfiguration on August 6th, and the Feast of Saint Mary the Virgin on the 15th, as I usually go to "my" convent around this time of year, and celebrating these reminds me of happy times with "my" nuns. Since I totally flaked out this year, I think I am going to move my celebration to one of those days, and in addition to baking and saying the Office, I will pray for a blessing on my new school year, which starts August 18th.
    Edit:
    There is also a really cool Lammas Liturgy located here. Just type in Lammas, and a bunch of stuff will pop up.

    I found this really cool page: A Christian Liturgy for Lughnasadh and the page described above has a new link here.
