Lammas Day in the Christian Calendar falls on the 1st of August and represents the ancient origins of the time when the first harvests were in and there was food for the coming year. Today, buying a loaf is a common and easy purchase on any day of the year whereas before the industrial production of food, producing bread for example was a vitally important part of the agricultural year and lives depended on good harvests.
Lammas is a pagan festival too honouring the Gods from many cultures.

Here is a link to Learn Religions.com where Patti Wigington lists some of the deities associated with the harvest. Our Christian take on the tradition is but one of many; all of which have equal value although I find poor Attis a bit hard to understand given his madness and what he did to himself. The story does highlight the main theme of Lammas though, which is rebirth and regeneration.
