Argentinians celebrate the Fiesta de la Vendimia by drinking wine made from their vineyards. Fruit pastries called kolache are common in Czech harvest festivals.
Giving thanks for food and family, no matter where or when, is important nearly everywhere in the world. This Thursday, many Americans will celebrate Thanksgiving by eating everything from turkey to cranberry sauce to pumpkin pie with friends and family, and enjoy their time off from work and school.
