The Land of a Thousand Candles
A holiday celebrated in the northern countries of Pondross, Erinar, and Zibrae. It is an historical observation of the formation of those three countries, and the plight of the people who settled them.
The three countries were founded as a single colony in 810, by explorers from Dunsmierne. For a decade, the colony barely survived the elements of the near-polar region, particularly the horrendous winters. Several in the colony headed south to form a second colony along the southern shore of Byrtra, which caused a major rift among the colonialists.
