All grains are symbolic of Lughnasadh. I want to make sun god shape bread this year round but I've never done it before. Corn husks and ale may take their place on the altar too.

The festival has many names, all over Europe. Here in England the name is Lammas. It celebrates the first Harvest of the year, and is a Sabbat. What the altar is dressed with would depend on the country harvest.In the UK the first harvest is all the "table" vegetables. The second harvest,corn,wheat,etc. is at Mabon. The main ceremony of Lammas, at least in the UK, is to climb the nearest mountain (or big hill!). In some of the more remote villages they still have the wild goat,Mr Puck, and parade him around the village. But that ceremony has just about died out these days.
Celebrations (in the UK) start in the evening of July 31 until the evening of August 1st. Some groups spend all night on top of the mountain or hill!

I never thought about doing that with the bread, maybe I'll try it next year. Thanks for the idea :)

That's very interesting is there a meaning or reason for the climbing of a mountain or big hill?

Thank you both for sharing the things you do for this sacred day. This year will be my first time celebrating any of the sabbets, so hearing what others do really helps so Thank you!

As Brysing said it's for the first harvest. Personally I spend it outside, and I eat seasonal fruit, vegetables and make home made bread. I decorate my altar with greens, the vegetables from my garden [or the seasonal vegetables I bought since I'm in an apartment now and don't have a garden] I also love sunflowers and usually have a bouquet on the altar.

Nicole, at one time all mountains were sacred in Pagan beliefs. In Ireland there is a very famous sacred mountain,the name escapes me at the moment. Thousands of people climb it as a "pilgrimage" at Lammas.

My grapes are about ready to eat. They are still a bit tangy now. I will celebrate symbolically, since we have harvest at different times of year here. Life continues in a circle, with seasons having meanings. Love that!
