Yep. Although Lamas is taken from the Catholic 'loaf-mas' from long time ago as far as I understand. Aug 1 is also called Lughnasadh. ..."referring to Lugh, the Irish sun god. However, the funeral is not his own, but the funeral games he hosts in honor of his foster-mother Tailte. For that reason, the traditional Tailtean craft fairs and Tailtean marriages (which last for a year and a day) are celebrated at this time. " (fr wicca.com)
Pretty interesting... It is the first harvest. Mabon is the second and falls on the equinox. I'm having a pot luck to celebrate...
Now, would Lammas eve be like Christmas eve (wouldn't it?), so that Juliet was born on July 31? My daughter's b-day...

Tull! 1978, Madison Square Garden. There we were, there I was. Paul, I clicked on your link and Keith ( hubby ) proclaimed, "That sounds like Jethro Tull, "My God". That in and of itself made me smile. I have a new location, for anyone who happens to care!
