And just like that we have hopped over into the New Year and are celebrating the onset of longer days already! It doesn’t matter which part of the country you’re from because the harvest season equally precious to every state, region, and culture. The one thing that makes today extra special – apart from the festivities – is all the food that goes into making the day extra special.
