Hey folks, Happy Lughnasadh! Today marks the halfway point between the Summer Solstice and the Autumn Equinox and is the traditional beginning of the harvest season.

Lughnasadh was begun by the Celtic god Lugh, a god of many, many talents, in honor of his foster mother Tailtiu who, after clearing and thus preparing the fields of Ireland for planting, died of exhaustion.
