    We Plough the Fields and Scatter brings back memories! I’ve visited the French Fete des Vendages harvest festival (like Szüreti it’s another wine-fuelled one) but that’s my only overseas autumn event, who knew there were so many to choose from!

      Ooh, I didn’t spot the Fete des Vendages – thanks 🙂 As for Szüreti, it was my dad (Hungarian, obviously) who told me all about it, as info is scare on the internet!

  2. Fabulous post, Sara! Fascinating to read about the way it’s celebrated around the world.

      Thanks Kathryn, I especially love the pagan rituals and the Mid-Autumn Festival because of their closer connection to astronomical events – but they’re all good!

    I remember Harvest Festival at school too! But it’s great to read about other ways of celebrating both the equinox and autumn. I might even create my own little pagan ritual. Thanks Sara!

      A pleasure, Helen. Great idea to create your own ritual – one idea is to include water somehow, since it’s the element which represents autumn.
