On September 28 we celebrated Harvest. Every year around this time we give God thanks for His plentiful harvest. At church they set up a table with the harvest (a lot of it is bought but some of it comes from people's dachas). After the service we have a little feast and crack open a big watermelon. These are one of the days that I look forward to!
Seeing all the fall produce on the street is a big reminder that the season has arrived and that pretty soon we will be buried in snow!
