In ancient times sky lanterns were used to send up prayers to the heavens. One of the common prayers was for the crops and to make sure the harvest was bountiful. Today is Lammas Day and in keeping with the tradition of sky lanterns it is the perfect time to send them up into the sky. Lammas Day is the first harvest festival of the season. When those who celebrated this day in the past used sky lanterns, though, they did not have the modern technology you have today. Now, not only do you have better materials and craftsmanship but you also have the added advantage of utilizing 100% biodegradable and 100% wire free products. For such an earthy holiday, this is a great time to use eco friendly sky lanterns.

Whether you are actually celebrating Lammas Day or just want an excuse to have a fun get together there is no beating sky lanterns for having a great time. In ancient times prayers were sent off to the heavens in hopes that when the sky lanterns floated in the air they would get closer to the gods’ ears. Today, you may not adhere to such beliefs but you can still use sky lanterns to send up wishes or prayers. You can customise the sky lanterns by using a sharpie pen and writing a wish, a prayer, a funny saying or poem on it before sending it off. Even if you are not doing it to get it closer to the gods’ ears, it is still a fun way to celebrate an ancient tradition in Lammas Day by employing ancient customs.

Many of those who still celebrate Lammas Day today are pagan. Many pagans are very concerned with the earth and ensuring the environment remains as healthy as possible. This includes reducing our footprint on the earth, conserving and ensuring there is no waste. With Night Sky Lanterns, this is easy to accomplish this Lammas Day. Because all our sky lanterns are eco friendly, you can rest assured you are doing your part to reduce your footprint on the earth. But, you can do so while having a great time. All our sky lanterns are 100% biodegradable and will degrade quickly once exposed to the elements, leaving no trace it existed. In addition, we recently converted all our sky lantern products to completely wire free solutions. So, no bits of wire will be left to degrade at a slower rate and no shards will inadvertently harm wildlife or livestock.

Choose from the white traditional sky lanterns or the coloured sky lanterns for your celebration this Lammas Day. When you send the sky lanterns into the night sky you will have a wondrous display that can be seen for many kilometres. It’s a great sight that is fun and beautiful to watch. Also, make sure you keep some extra sky lanterns on hand for those times where you have an impromptu gathering or need them quickly. They store easily and keep for a long time.
