This Greater Sabbat and Cross Qtr day is also known as the Feast of Bread and is a time of transformation. The Sun God Lugh, whose name comes from the word Lughnasadh, is associated with this Sabbat.

“Once upon a Lammas Night When corn rigs are bonny, Beneath the Moon’s unclouded light, I held awhile to Annie… The time went by with careless heed Between the late and early, With small persuasion, she agreed To see me through the barley… Corn rigs and barley rigs, Corn rigs are bonny! I’ll not forget that happy night Among the rigs with Annie!” – Robert Burns gardendigest.com
