Harvest Festivals are a traditional household celebration of the Boggans.

Overview Edit

Boggan19

Harvest time is another important occasion for boggans. The focus is on food: the pleasure of preparing it, the security of having plenty, the necessity of preserving that plenty through the long cold winter. There is plenty to do, and once all the work is finished, it is important to celebrate a job well done, and to give thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year.

Giving thanks is a particularly important act for boggans, who so venerate the act of gratitude. Going around the table and saying what you’re thankful for is never just a token gesture, and boggans can expound for long minutes, enumerating their various blessings and contentedly reveling in them. It can take a while, but it’s hard to get bored listening to such genuine happiness.

Boggans look askance at the association of pilgrims and colonialism with their autumnal celebrations. They were celebrating the harvest since long before pilgrims landed in Plymouth, and do not think that the pilgrims were especially well-behaved guests on arriving in America, to put it very mildly.
