Many Christian churches, inspired in part by our modern concerns for the whole environment, celebrate several weeks of Creationtide. It begins on 1 September, which is Creation Day in the Orthodox Church and incorporates St Francis’ Day on 4 October, a saint closely associated with nature. It is the time when many religions are celebrating a Harvest Festival, when they give thanks to God for all good gifts. Many Christians give special gifts at Harvest, as a way of giving thanks to God and helping those in need.
The season finishes on 10 October, a focus date for global climate change campaigning.
