Holidays of Elanthia

Celebrate. Honor. Remember. Connect.

These are but a handful of the reasons why people gather and how ceremonies, holidays, and celebrations are formed. Throughout Elanthia, there are numerous such gatherings. Traditions are formed around commonalities, and these can be geographically inclined, family-based, or important to those of particular cultures or races. Some even seem to carry across all these lines with at least recognition for a handful of holidays and important dates.

Throughout 5124, seasonal compilations of celebrations and holidays will be released. As with most things, there may be individuals, even large groups of individuals, who do not ascribe to their particular group's preferred celebrations and holidays, and there will always be people who celebrate in their own way and style. These compilations then, serve as a repository of information, but one should not assume an individual would adhere to this practice simply because their town or race does.
