Christians use the Harvest Festival to think about how God loves the world and cares for it. Churches are decorated with the things that Christians are thankful for and they sing songs of gratitude. They also show they are followers of Jesus by doing the sorts of things Jesus himself used to do, such as looking after people who are less fortunate.
