Harvest Festivals from Around the World

    Egyptian Harvest Festival

    In Egypt the celebration of the spring-time harvest festival was dedicated to Min, their god of vegetation and fertility. Spring being the harvest season of the Egyptian's was the time to hold the festival. The festival featured a parade in which the Pharaoh took part. After the parade a great feast was held. Music, dancing, and sports were also part of the celebration.

    When the Egyptian farmers harvested their corn, they wept and pretended to be grief-stricken. This was done to deceive the spirits of which they believed lived in the corn. They feared the spirits would become angry when the farmers cut down the corn where the spirits lived.
