Di benedicaris vos.
The Collegio Sacerdae and the Sacra Flameno have decided to adopt for future celebration Lammas as a holiday of the Collegio and the Sancta culture. The Lammas holiday is of Celtic and Germanic origin — cultures and religions that normally fall outside the range of Sandus’s Sancta culture. The rationale behind the decision to place Lammas on the calendar is both from a modern Pagan perspective, as Lammas is an important holiday celebrating the first fruits and first harvests for many modern Pagans and Polytheists, and from the perspective of the work of the Citizens’ Communist Party of Sandus; Lammas falls almost exactly three months before the celebration of the State holidays of the National Day of Socialism and the Day of the Ways & Means of Revolution (VII et VIII Novembro; 7 and 8 November).
Lammas in the future will be a holiday marking future reports on the State of Sandus’s work towards annual Party Year Plans, such as the recent report published by Acting Secretary Gaius Sörgel Publicola. As the holiday takes place three months before the annual CCPS Party Congresses, it will be a holiday primarily focused on remotivating Sandus towards achieving success in the annual CCPS Party Year Plans. The holiday will also be an important celebration for Tellus Agrarian Cooperative, much like the celebrations that take place in Quintilo (July) — Lucaria, Neptunalia, and Furrinalia.
