I haven’t posted about any neo-Pagan holidays in a while, but today is Lughnasa, the harvest festival marking the end of the summer growing season and the beginning of the fall harvest.

This holiday resonates with my Enya-listening self, because I think the weather here does change around the first week of August–we get some rain and when it clears, the light is different and you can tell it’s the beginning of the end of summer.

Or maybe I just need all the help I can get letting go of the warm weather. Like a Druidic 12-step program, Lughnasa gives me six weeks to come to terms with the fall equinox.
