Update 11 - World of Trexlin
It was noticed that I omitted any mention of the holidays found in the Empire of the Platinum Lion. This was, in part, intentional, as the calendar is used much wider than simply within the Empire - and holidays (with the exception of one or two) in the Empire are largely Empire-specific.
However, for those interested, below is a listing of the major holidays celebrated in the Empire
New Year - Prendul 1 - Celebrates the first day of the new year. All shops are generally closed. It is also the Winter Solstice
Martial Day - Drisdul 19 - Celebrates the victories of the Empire. Originally the day the forces of Lord Gertim surrendered in 262
Imperial Day - Osendul 14 - Celebrates Emporers - both past and present
Hiding Day - Mesdul 8 - Familes hide small presents for their children to find. Originally, this was a day of remembrance for the day Lionchild I disappeared.
High Summer's Eve Kon 20 - Summer Solstice - all shops are closed. Marks the start of the Midyear festival
Midyear Feast Kon 21 - 23 - A three-day event. Largest holiday in the Empire, it is marked by celebrations, festivals, tournaments, and performances
Opening Day Brekdul 7 - The day when the Tomb of the Lion is opened and any who wish to enter are permitted. [Note: The Tomb of the Lion is also opened on the 42nd of each month - more as a tradition. No one is permitted to enter on these dates - rather, it is opened in the belief that Lionchild I still wanders the Tomb searching for the Sword and Staff of the Lion.]
Tomb of the Lion - in the Imperial capital of Lions Den
