Happy Lughnasadh!

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!
