Did you know that harvest festivals originally celebrated a successful harvest or the harvest season itself, depending on the country?
In Britain, the beginning of the harvest season was celebrated on August 1 with a harvest festival called Lammas and the end was celebrated with a big meal called a Harvest Supper. Countries around the world, including the United States, still celebrate harvest-time traditions.
