Lughnasadh is one of the four biggest festivals of the old Irish calendar. Imbolc, Samhain, and Beltane being the others. But today is Lughnasadh, a holiday for honoring the ancient goddess Tailtiu. Since I don’t imagine too many people doing that nowadays, here’s some other things you can do to celebrate Lughnasadh:
-Bonfires and dancing
-Reuniting with family
-Go pick some blueberries or blackberries if you have any near you
-Listen to some Irish folk music (it’s actually very good, if you don’t think you’d like it – and this is coming from a metal head!)
-Learn a few phrases in Gaelic; it’s a fun language
Happy Lughnasadh everyone!
