Lammas is a Christian church celebration. Lammas is short for “loaf mass.” The pagan holiday is Lughnasadh. Just like the word “Christmas” means “Christ mass” and Candlemas means “candle mass” and they are really SPECIFIC Christian church days. It was part of that whole “let’s appropriate the pagan festivals and holidays to convert them into Christians” deal.
Yes, while some folks are not wanting to associate this word with the holiday, despite it’s origins, many Wiccans do use “Lammas” to refer to this holiday. Lughnasadh is a Celtic name for the holiday, and not all traditions are Celtic.. In prior episodes we have named the podcast Lughnadadh, so this year we called it Lammas. Perhaps it continues to be used because it is easier to spell?
Hello. I discovered this podcast about a month ago thanks to Stacy from the Mystic South official group. I’ve really been enjoying your podcast and I love the workshops and all of the various segments. I really appreciate your hard work and thank you very much and I hope all of you make it through the storm safe and sound.
Thank you, Charles, for your kind words! <3
