The Night of Harvested Souls is observed by fieldmice on 1 August. It is said that the creatures who have died by the action of the harvester are said to return from the dead and walk again in the corn fields. On this night, the youngsters of Fennywolde enjoy telling ghost stories and snuggling up inside their nests to listen for the spectres of those who have 'gone ahead' to tread the ground below them.
