Lammas, or Lughnasadh is the pagan sabbat that celebrates planting season and is one of the 3 festivals of the harvest. There are many traditions in a variety of cultures that create with corn husks during this time of year to honor the harvest season. In some northern cultures it was believed that corn husks carried the spirit of the corn and offerings of such would increase the fertility of the land. Corn husks were fashioned into various shapes and dolls were representative of everything from mother earth to the matriarch of the family. Corn husk dolls were created and adorned to be gifted or placed in a sacred space in ones home.
