Thread Name: Happy Lammas (August 1)
Subject: RE: Happy Lammas
Another bit of information. Apparently there was once a "Lamb Mass" held in a church in York and this may have given rise to Lammas. You pays your money. Incidentally anyone interested in customs should try and get the book "Chronicle of Celtic Folk Customs" by Brian Day. ISDN 0-600-59837-3. It is a day-to-day guide to folk tradition and is profusely illustrated.
