Happy Lammas, Everyone!
We honor Frey today, and His Divine Family with Gifts of joy, celebration, with food, drink, prayers, and song. In the time of our ancestors, it would have been the start of the harvest. By now, the garden would be flourishing and there would be so much bounty from the land with which to feed one’s family and community. I think it’s easy to forget what a crucial turning point in our survival this holy tide marks. Hail Freyr, every and always, the God of bounty, God of the land, God Who brings peace and fruitfulness, and God Who loves without measure.
And happy Lammas everyone. May Freyr’s blessings fall upon all those who need it, and all those who honor Him, and all those struggling to find a way to reap a fruitful harvest in life and work and devotion.
