Lammas - 1st August Literally translated means 'loaf mass day' and celebrates harvesting of the first grains. Couples were encouraged to steal into the woods and procreate ;) Corn dollies were made to symbolise the goddess of the grain to ensure a good harvest the next year. Make plaited bread to remind you not to take food for granted. Before each meal on the 1st say 'I bless this food and I'm grateful for all the good things the Earth brings to my table'
