Thread Name: Happy Lammas (August 1)
Subject: Happy Lammas
Aug. 1st is Lammas or the celebration of the beginning of harvest season in Scotland and England. This brings to mind the poem and song by Robert Burns.

CORN RIGS (or Rigs o' Barley) (Robert Burns)

It was upon a Lammas night
When the corn rigs were bonnie,
Beneath the moon's unclouded light
I held awa' to Annie...
