To show my gratitude for all the blessings of the harvest, I will give the DVD Each Day in the Year of the Fire Dog to the first person to comment on this post. I am adding 3 postcards relating to Lughnasa today with more information below.

Lughnasa, aka Lammas, is the Celtic celebration of the first harvest, grains. Being one of the 4 fire festivals that is determined by the mid point between the Solstice and Equinox, it is celebrated over a period of several days, rather than exact moments like the Solstice. When I made these cards I was visiting my beloved Colorado so I used these vintage cards of Rocky Mountain National Park as the start of the card.

So, there is time to plan a wonderful gathering to share your blessings with bread!
