Today is Lammas.

Lammas Day (loaf-mass day), the festival of the first wheat harvest of the year.
This festival is also known as Lughnasadh, a feast to commemorate the funeral games (Tailtean Games) of Tailtiu, foster-mother of the Irish sun-god Lugh. Lammas is a Cross-quarter day occurring 1/4 of a year after Beltane.

Lammas is a Gaelic holiday celebrated on the full moon nearest the midpoint between the summer solstice and autumnal equinox, during the time of the harvesting.

Some Neopagans mark the holiday by baking a figure of the God in bread, and then symbolically sacrificing and eating it.
