The festival of New Year is celbrated on Jada 1, when both the moons of Tol, Davron and Kassyle, are new, leaving the skies of Tol is great darkness. Because of this great darkness, many creatures that fear the light come out on this night. As the night is holy to the god Oldorin of The Twelve, many fear that death is very powerful on this night as well.
It is customary for many of the people of Summerlund to gather in their local churches for services throughout the night. They hang frightful masks on the doors of their houses to scare would-be invaders away, and they make many sweet treats to occupy children during the long night of fear.
