Because we "globalized" our food distribution, many US people can no longer tell you what foods/produce are grown in what season.

They've got pumpkins associated with fall and turkey+dressing for the Big Shopping Holiday Period (Thanksgiving thru New Years). Easter dinner usually involves a large ham for Christians. Summer is watermelon and BBQ.

After that it depends on the region and the family's historical culture. Our house believes any holiday/season involving festivals and food is worth celebrating so we not only do our historical heritages of Japanese and European stuff but pull in Mexican foods-traditions (being originally from Texas), and a few other random bits of fun.

Thanksgiving involves turkey+dressing and heaps of sushi. New Years includes black-eyed peas and Ozoni.
