Lughnasadh (Southern Hemisphere)
Start Date: 2/1/2018 All Day
End Date: 2/1/2018

Event Description:
Wiccan/Pagan holyday in the Southern Hemisphere, begins sundown evening before. Lughnasadh is a Gaelic traditional festival marking the beginning of harvest season, held about halfway between the summer solstice and the fall equinox (making its placement dependent on whether you live in the northern or southern hemisphere).  The festival itself is named after the god Lugh, and involved great gatherings that included religious ceremonies, ritual athletic, feasting, matchmaking, and trade. Although many of its customs died out in the 20th century, it is still observed as a religious holiday by Celtic neopagans and Wiccans today.
