Today is Lughnasad, aka Lammas Day, aka Loaf Mass Day, marking the beginning of Lammastide, which is either the Gaelic Autumn harvest festival, or a special day to honor llamas. No idea if llamas were named such because they were used for harvesting crops, but these days who knows? Anyway, since it's loaf-mass day, Da-da's mass is loafing. He might make pumpkin spice muffins later though. Here's the recipe from last year, when Da-da was a lot funnier. Ah, well. Everything has its season. At least Da-da got to change the wreath on the house.
So, WHY does Da-da mention what some might see as an obsolete harvest festival? Two things:
1. The planet's weather is changing and shorter growing cycles of yore might become the norm, and...
2. It marks the beginning of BACK TO SCHOOL preparations!
