Westorosi Holidays?

Recommended Posts

There is Maiden's Day as was revealed in AFfC. There could be a holiday for each of the Seven except the Stranger.

I don't think the faith of the Old Gods has any holidays.

Most likely there are holidays for each of the Seven, as Fire Eater stated above, and also some days like the day Aegon landed on the continent, when the harvest is done and there may also be some according to astrological events, like when a certain planet comes into view and stuff like that.

Hm, I doubt there would be such thing as thanksgiving for harvest, because with the long irregular seasons there are many harvests and not really an end of harvest...

and probably that goes for most of our holidays, many of them being based somehow very basically on the regular changing of seasons,

(even things in the line of easter --> fertility ---> spring)

There are definitely harvest festivals. Bran is hosting one in early ACoK.

oh you're right about that!

but I don't think this is a regular thing to do, but that it is done at that time because it was called out Autumn after some 10 years

and soon the last harvest for some years to come...

that would not make it a part of some "regular" holiday calendar in one year...

edited for spelling
