Festival
Last Sunis of Aprivius

Entry

The Week of Remembrance is a seven-day festival, a time to celebrate and honor the ancestors and the respected dead, that falls on the last Sunis in the month of Aprivius.  Although primarily an observance of the Keepers, many other religions and organizations follow the holiday.  The Aldarites and Imperial family use the time to promote the great leaders of the past, Kolrehsans remember those that have fallen in battle, and the Elves build small shrines to their ancestors and loved ones no longer with them.

In Sentra, the first day of the festival is started with a family dinner, with extra portions being set aside for those that have died.  As the sun sets, people stand outside holding traditional candles while a procession of Keepers walks through the city streets.  They pray and chant and sing, asking that any spirits that come to visit over the week are benevolent and remember their loved ones with kindness, and that those still living honor the dead in return.  This is supposed to be a time when the veil between the living and the dead is weaker, and although rare, it is not unheard of for a spirit to cause some havoc through the night.  The Keepers are very quick and very firm about putting an end to any such occurrences, although there are always children and teenagers that put on a mask and run around as mischief makers that lay the blame on restless spirits.
