Just tell me when and where, and I am with you. But if you love your friends, for Crist`s sake, keep me away from the oven!!!

It's a British (old pagan) traditional festival using the first corn to bake the first bread. It is not a gathering of expats in a bar :)

Personally I will be at home, and will have forgotten all about this thread. I was just bored and wanted to see if anyone knew what I was on about.

What is Lammas ? What does this word mean ?

It comes from old English and means something like 'bread feast' or 'bread mass' because at some point it became a christian festival (you know how they like to take old celebrations and make them their own) and a mass was held to bless the new harvest.

I will be drinking like a fish with my class-mates on the 1st of Aug as we usually do in the beginning of every Aug. I will tell them about Lammas Day to make more fun.

Actually for what it's worth I think it is pronounced something like Lammus.
