A name formerly given to special feasts in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary, particularly to the feast of the Annunciation; also, in medieval England, the Mass said in the Lady chapel or in honor of Mary, Mother of God. To this day, in the ultra-Protestant county of Ayrshire, Scotland, a fair held on or about 15 August is still called Marymas.
