Many unique holidays, festivals and celebrations are held throughout the year and vary by culture and/or calendar.
Hayato Holidays & Festivals
Tenno Tanjobi (天皇誕生日/Tenno's Birthday) is one of the most important holidays of Yamatai, celebrating the birth of the incumbent emperor. It changes when a new emperor takes the throne. Aside from prayers and well-wishes, it is the one time a year when the grounds and gardens of Imperial Palace in Daitoshi are open to the general public—which, excluding staff, government officials, high ranking army officers, and state guests, is normally forbidden to all outsiders.
Birthdays of imperial family members – specifically the immediate family of the current emperor; i.e siblings, spouse and children – are celebrated like holidays as well.
Ganjitsu (元日) is the term for Teikoku New Year, observed by all countries and dependencies of Hayato culture.
Jiti Holidays & Festivals
Jiti Xinnian (集體新年/Jiti New Year's) is the New Year's festival in Jiti culture. It begins three days prior to New Year's and continues until three days after.
A Septifidelic holiday celebrating the abjaksan's victory over the dark lord. Observed on Rasanova 25th. The date was chosen due to the lack of specific knowledge of the true date.
Talmyri Holidays & Festivals
A week-long Talmyri religious festival celebrating Gnogton, the king of the gods. It starts on the first Coloday of Gopaco and ends the following Pafsiday.
Holiday celebrating the conclusion of Alfrydion's War of Unification and the unification of Talmyrnia under a central government. Observed on Jesoran 8th.
Vampiric Holidays & Festivals
A vampiric religious festival holiday celebrating the entire pantheon. Observed on Opesagyr 31st.
Festival of Iza
A week-long vampiric paganistic religious festival to the Iza, the Vampiric Goddess Animals, Spring, Nature, Flowers, Trees, & Vegetation. It is held during the last full week of Trisca, in the week preceding the last Pafsiday of the month.
A young girl is randomly chosen to represent Iza. The girl is stripped of her clothes, coated with a special oil made from bloodflowers, and adorned with flowers in her hair. The girl spends several days in the branches of a holy tree like a throne. On the final day, she descends from the tree and rides a horse bareback to the temple of Iza to pray to her.
