Celebrations and Holidays

The holidays that are generally recognized and acknowledged in all of Faerun are listed below. Their significance in a particular region varies based on a variety of cultural, environmental and other regional factors. Additionally, there are many other less universal-regional holidays that are acknowledged or celebrated based on diversity in beliefs and on both inter and intra-regional cultural influence. These dates will be updated under Esoteric-Regional Holidays.

COMMON HOLIDAYS

The Common holidays can be visualized on the Calendar of Harptos. These days are Midwinter, Greengrass, Midsummer, Highharvestide, The Feast of the Moon, and to some extent, Shieldmeet.

Midwinter:  falls between Hammer and Alturiak.

Greengrass: falls between Tarsakh and Mirtul.

Midsummer: falls between Flamerule and Eleasis.

Highharvestide: falls between Elient and Marpenoth. 

The Feast of the Moon: falls  between Uktar and Nightal.

Shieldmeet: Occurs every four years, and  is added as a leap day immediately following the Midsummer holiday.

Note: The holidays do not fall on the actual day the season changes. The 19th of Ches is the Spring Equinox, the 20th of Kythorn is the Summer Solstice, the 21st of Elient is the Autumn Equinox and the 20th of Nightal is the Winter Solstice.
