Holidays in the Faerun Calender

Holidays do not fit into a month, but are rather extra days between months.

Midwinter - Midwinter is a feast where, traditionally, the local lords of the land plan for the year ahead, make and renew alliances, and send gifts of goodwill. To the commonfolk throughout the Realms, this is Deadwinter Day, the midpoint of the worst of the cold. Takes place the day after the 30th of Hammer (January).

Greengrass - Greengrass is the official beginning of spring, a day of relaxation. Takes places the day after the 30th of Tarsakh (April)

Midsummer - Midsummer, called Midsummer Night or the Long Night, is a time of feasting and music and love. It is very rare indeed for the weather to be bad during this night--such is considered a very bad omen, usually thought to foretell famine or plague. Takes place the day after the 30th of Flamerule (July)

Shieldmeet - Once every four years, another day is added to the year in the manner of February 29 in the Gregorian calendar. This day is part of no month and follows Midsummer Night. It is known as Shieldmeet. It is the day of open council between nobles and people, a day for the making and renewing of pacts, oaths, and agreements. Takes place the day after Midsummer, this year (1372) and not again until 1376.

Highharvestide - Highharvestide heralds the coming of fall and the harvest. It is a feast that often continues for the length of the harvest so that food is always on hand for those coming in from the fields. Takes place the day after the 30th of Eleint (September)

The Feast of the Moon - This festival, also called Moonfest, is the last great festival of the year. It marks the arrival of winter and is also the day when the dead are honored. Graves are blessed, the Ritual of Remembrance is performed, and tales of the doings of those now gone are told far into the night. Much is said of heroes and treasure and lost cities underground. Takes place the day after the 30th of Uktar (November)
