Some Holiday Ideas

Warriors Festival - 20th Sun's Dusk (20th November)

Today is the 20th of Sun's Dusk, the Warriors Festival in Tamriel. Most all the local warriors, spellswords, and rogues come to the equipment stores and blacksmiths where all weapons are half price. Unfortunately, the low prices also tempt many an untrained boy to buy his first sword and the normally quiet streets ring with amateur skirmishes.
North Wind's Prayer - 15th Evening Star (15th December)

Today is the 15th of Evening Star, a holiday reverently observed by the temples as North Wind's Prayer. It is a thanksgiving to the Gods for a good harvest and a mild winter. The temples offer all their services blessing, curing, healing for half the donation usually requested.
Baranth Do - 18th Evening Star (18th December)

Baranth Do is celebrated on the 18th of Evening. Star by the Redguards of the Alik'r Desert. Its meaning is "Goodbye to the Beast of Last Year". Pageants featuring demonic representations of the old year are popular, and revelry to honor the new year is everywhere.
Chil'a - 21th Evening Star (21st December)

Chil'a, the blessing of the new year in the barony of Kairou, is both a sacred day and a festival. The archpriest and the baroness each consecrate the ashes of the old year in solemn ceremony, then street parades, balls, and tournaments conclude the event.
New Life Festival - 25th Evening Star (25th December)

The New Life festival comes a few days early in Wayrest with Saturalia, traditionally held on the 25th of Evening Star. Originally a holiday for a long forgotten god of debauchery, it has become a time of gift giving, parties, and parading. Visitors are encouraged to participate.
Old Life - 30th Evening Star (30th December)

On the last day of the year the Empire celebrates the holiday called Old Life. Many go to the temples to reflect on their past. Some go for more than this, for it is rumored that priests will, as the last act of the year, perform resurrections on beloved friends and family members free of the usual charge. Worshippers know better than to expect this philanthropy, but they arrive in a macabre procession with the recently deceased nevertheless.

Hey, I know skyrim is a bit of an old game and all  (not hating, I love everything about skyrim just bear with me) I was wondering, if ...anyone wanted to...

Skyrim roleplay. Just for kicks. I know it sounds weird but I like talking to people and I enjoy skyrim so much i wanted to talk with people about skyrim. It doesn't even have to be a roleplay thing it could just be a general discussion. But if anyone's interested feel free to note me and I'll set up chatroom for it. ^U^
