When winter is over and spring arrives the people celebrate the end of cold long nights with a feast for the fey living in nearby hills and some from as far as The Western Wood. This is the time when the fields are thanked and children are given their birth name, and those on Winter’s Wander are welcomed home.
During the feast, people dress in elaborate and sometimes skimpy costumes based on the fey themselves. Costumes range from faux pixie wings and goat trousers to dresses of woven leaves.
It’s not unusual for a few sprites or a satyr to join the festivities, though sometimes more rare and unusual fey appear; a nymph, a spriggan, even the occasional unicorn straying from its glade. Strange curses and quirky blessings are commonly bestowed by the fey, though generally lifted by the next full moon at the latest. It’s a day for mischief and merriment for all concerned.
