Pagan Portals - Harvest Home: In-Gathering - How to Survive (and Enjoy) the Autumnal Festivals Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

In the good old days, the harvest festivals began in August (Lunasa - 'beginning of harvest') followed by September (Mean Fomhair) and October (Deireadh Fomhair) - translated as 'middle of harvest' and 'end of harvest' respectively.

Harvest was one of the most sacred times of the pagan year and the Harvest Home or 'in-gathering' was a community observance at the end of the harvest to celebrate and give thanks for the bounty. Celebrating the harvest is still the holiest time of the Craft year and Lammas celebrates the coming of harvest-tide with its decoration of corn sheaves, fancy loaves, berries and fruits - all leading up to the Autumnal Equinox (or Michaelmas) that marked its zenith with the eating of the traditional goose and the raucous festivities of the community harvest suppers and country fairs.
