Harvest Festival

As a school teacher and a farmer’s wife, I often have to contemplate the meaning of harvest festival, as the Autumn approaches. The scary thing I have found is that children (at the school I work in at least!) do not understand the meaning of harvest, despite having a harvest festival every year. So I pose the question;
What do you think the true meaning of harvest festival is?
Please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts about the true meaning of harvest festival.
