November is the time for feasting, the last hurrah before the ground freezes and very little will come from it.

Thanksgiving is the latest harvest celebration we could find.

Chavang Kut is celebrated on the 1st of November to honor the blessings of the deity for a good harvest every year. It also marks the end of the harvesting season. Roughly translated, 'Chavang' means 'autumn' and Kut means 'harvest'.

  • Dankdag voor Gewas en Arbeid: Netherlands, every first Wednesday of November; Thanksgiving Day for crop and labor

Olivagando, Magione, Italy

In Italy, Magione’s two-day festival in November celebrates both the feast day of St. Clement and the local olive harvest, bringing together everyone involved in the production of olive oil. A priest blesses the new oil at a special Mass, and the town hosts a lavish medieval dinner at its 12th-century castle.

The best olive oil in the world arguably comes from the Trasimeno region of Italy, about 15 miles west of Perugia. And every year, between Halloween and Christmas, the area holds the two day Olivagando Festival concurrently with the feast day of St. Clement. Olivagando brings all aspects of the olive oil industry together in celebration, from the olive tree growers to the processing companies. The main focus is on the oil of La Dolce Agogia, the finest quality olives grown in the area; so fine that they’re not exported. The festival revolves around olives, traditional food and Italian culture.
