Castlefest 2011

Castlefest is a festival to honour the sun, which at the Celts was worshipped as the god Lugh. This god brought mankind a lot of good things; he taught us how to grow grain and he warms the earth, so that the grain can grow and we can eat. The old Celtic harvest feast Lughnasadh is held in honour of this god. To this day heathens and Celtics alike celebrate this feast yearly around the first of August, also on Castlefest!

 

Castlefest is een festival ter ere van de zon, die bij de Kelten werd vereerd als de god Lugh. Deze god bracht de mensen veel goede dingen. Zo leerde hij ons om graan te verbouwen en hij verwarmt de aarde, zodat het graan kan rijpen en wij te eten hebben. Het oude Keltische oogstfeest Lughnasadh is aan deze god gewijd. Tot op de dag van vandaag vieren heidenen en kelten dit feest ieder jaar rond begin Augustus, ook op Castlefest!
