In the Northern Hemisphere, it is Lammas Day today – 1st August. Lammas (“loaf mass”) is an ancient celebration of the first harvest. It is one of several holidays celebrated by Neo-Pagans as part of the Wheel of the Year; Lammas falls between Midsummer and the Autumn Equinox. It’s also known as Lughnasadh. The festival celebrates the first harvest of wheat and loaves of bread used to be brought to church to be blessed.
