Germany - Erntedanktag
This is the occasion where Germans give thanks for their harvests. Erntedanktag means "harvest of Thanksgiving Day" which takes place in October throughout the country, but especially in the more rural and religious communities. The event is topped off with a harvest crown, Erntekrone, a handcrafted headpiece made with some of the year's produce. The crown is then brought to the church where a service is held followed by festivities.
