Those are wonderful suggestions. I love the idea of collecting seeds for kids to play with or make crafts with. I think I will start collecting seeds now, even though Daniel's a bit too young.

I usually do enjoy nature walks around this time of year and collecting natural objects, especially pine cones! And I think I will definitely look at baking a blackberry pie and maybe some biscuits of some description.

How would you go about making a wreath, Megan?

Here is the research on Lughnasadh I did for the calendar:

Traditionally this is the festival of the Celtic god Lugh, and later, the Anglo-Saxons marked the festival of "Loaf-mass" at this time, which became the Christian Lammas in the Northern Hemisphere calendar (August). Many Pagans in the Northern Hemisphere today celebrate this feast day on Lammas - both are marked on our calendar, as well as the Southern Hemisphere date for Lughnasadh.

This is also the first day of the harvest which concludes at Samhain. Symbols connected with corn may be used at this time.
