Happy Lammas Day!

August First was called Lammas Day in old England. It was called that because loaves of bread were baked from the first harvested grain and then consecrated in churches.

The word “Lammas” came from Old English “hlaf” (loaf) and “maesse” (mass). It was the mass for loaves. It is very old. Over time the words loaf mass evolved into lammas.

It derives from an ancient pre-Christian English festival called the Gule of August, marking the beginning of the harvest. The English church adopted the day and made it a Christian feast or holiday.

It is interesting and good to know our heritage. (Source: The Old Farmer’s Almanac)
