A dragons breath in the Mists
Changeling Holidays Midwinter’s Night, December 22nd
The Winter Solstice, or Yule, marks the time of the most popular human festivity, Christmas. Supposed Christian tradition or not, this celebration was adapted from the Celtic calendar, where members of the family gathered to trade gifts. The Fae (especially the Childlings) love this celebration and spend weeks in a state of hyperactive excitement. It is a more personal festival, where a Motley or family usually gathers to eat and drink, and trade small gifts. Tradition says that the gifts must be made by the person, and not acquired from anywhere else, so they usually take the shape of biscuits, cakes, little wooden figurines, clothes, jewellery, paintings, etc. It is also on Yule that the Firebrands leave Tara-Nar carrying a lantern with a flame that will be used to rekindle the Balefire in every Freehold in Concordia.
