In the old days, the harvest festival was an annual celebration that occurred in every given farming region around the world. Depending on the timing of the crops and the climate, harvest festivals could happen in late summer and early fall – all the way into the first part of winter. With the crops harvested and food and wine safely stored away, the workers were free to participate in all sorts of merriment, contests, music, and romance.
