We are now really into the wintery months and that means warm fires and hot soups. These are some images from a recent harvest festival I attended. A harvest festival is an annual celebration that occurs around the time of the main harvest of a given region. Harvest festivals typically feature feasting, both family and public, with foods that are drawn from crops that come to maturity around the time of the festival. Ample food and freedom from the necessity to work in the fields are two central features of harvest festivals: eating, merriment, contests, music and romance are common features of harvest festivals around the world.
