Lammas Day marked the beginning of the harvest. Traditionally, loaves of bread were baked from the first-ripened grain and brought to the churches to be consecrated. In Scotland, Lammastide fairs became famous as the time when trial marriages could be made. These marriages could end after a year with no strings attached. Hmm........ Sorry, I am not in agreement with that. But that is coming from someone who has been married for 37 years and counting!! Have a wonderful week friends.
