Renewal’s Eve falls on the last day of Quiet every year, and is usually celebrated with family or at the temple in an evening of reflection and prayer for a good Spring harvest, a healthy family, and the lifting of the veil of Quiet’s cold.
Renewal Day falls on the first day of Renewal every year, and is a day of celebration, feasting and family.

The Festival of Good Harvest falls on the first day of Browning every year, and marks the completion of the yearly harvest.
