Lammas also known as Lughnasadh is on July 31 and August 1. It is a day to give thanks for the cycle of life, which provides us with sustenance for our bodies and spirits. The earth provides nourishment for our hunger, but we must provide ourselves with spiritual fuel as well. At the beginning of every year we make oaths to improve ourselves, and Lammas is a chance to reflect on these promises and see if we have remained true to our spirits.
In the lore of the Goddess and the God, Lammas is when the God knows that he must sacrifice himself for his people, and takes the role as the Dark Lord. The Lord enters the Underworld, allowing the Earth¢s creatures to reap the rewards of plentiful the season of his rule. The Dark Lord feels an emptiness, but does not recognize the source yet. He searches the Underworld in vain to cure his pain. When the God leaves the Goddess, she is devastated by his selfless sacrifice to his people. In her unhappiness, the Earths life begins to dwindle. The crops yield, but then wither. The warmth of the morning slowly dissolves into cool afternoons. She mourns the loss of her husband, and the season cools and darkens with her sadness.
