Chalion Wiki

Father's Day was a festival held on the first day of winter, the winter solstice. Father's Day events included collecting the gifts that kept the temple running for the next three months.

In Chalion, the ceremony included a young new father dressed in dark robes playing the role of the Father of Winter. He was mounted on a black horse that was led by a raggedly dressed youth representing the outgoing Son of Autumn.

The Father's Feast was held on Father's Day and typically involved sacred music and dancing.

A secondary festival for the Father was held at midwinter.
