Lughnasadh is Gaelic for the modern Irish word “Lunasa,” meaning August. It is a fire festival and the first of three harvests. This festival is not only about life and bounty, but of harvest and death, the complete cycle of life.

Like many of the other pagan holidays, this sabbat was acquired by Christians and renamed Lammas.
