Lammas, Lughnasadh - 1st August Lugh, John Barleycorn The yeaAmid the poppies and chamomile, young men toil to cut the wheat and barley, wielding scythes as sharp as razors. The work is hot and dusty and thirst is slaked with john Barleycorn's ale from the nut-brown jug. When the stooks are loaded onto the carts the last sheaf will be made into a 'corn dolly' to preserve its life force until the seeds are sown for a new crop next year. It is the hottest time of the year, the Celtic Sun God, Golden Lugh, shines down mercilessly burning the faces of those who venture out too long. At evening, the harvest moon is huge and red, its shadows displaying the mark of the hare; the spirit of the harvest.
