A few of the core members gathered to honor Lugh on Saturday, August 2, 2014. This year’s Lughnasadh was small in comparison, due to schedules and other circumstances, regardless, Lugh was satisfied and happy to be honored and remembered with penis break and sausage gravy as the main offerings.
Lughnasadh is the traditional time for offering the first bread of the harvest, in which this year’s form they were penis bread. The foundations of the Sun and Moon temple were restored and the Angels welcomed back. A simple druid ceremony brought all the parts together before the close. The feast included grilled bratwursts in honor of Lugh, spinach salad and funeral potatoes.
