After a discution on NGL list, it seams we have a problem deciding if usi=
word for Christian Easter and Jewish Passover would offend anybody. Even=
English has two words, many other languages have only one and it seams to=
doesn't harm neither Jews nor Christians having Pascua at the same time.
Well. I know there are two main festivities in Western Christian traditi=
Christmas and Easter. Around Christmas there is Advient, Epifany and oth=
festivities of greather or lessen importance in different places. Easter=
related festivities begin with Carnivals and Ash Wensday and finnish in
Pentacost. Allother Christian festivities are associated to the date of =
and would vary.
=46rom Jewish tradition I know about Hanuka and Passover.
And I know Muslims have Ramadan.
I know nothing else about other natreligions.
For my conreligions I'm still working in two projects: Fyrismonlaryn are =
and I haven't decipher their religion, if any one, yet.
Hangkerim are humans in an alternative history. It seams in their believ=
recognize some "masters" with share characters similar to Jesus, Zoroastr=
or Buda, but I can't be sure if it is coincidence or if their history spl=
from ours after these characters lived.
Hangkerim have one month of Holidays from the last New Moon of the year t=
first New Moon, and the year beguins with an equinox. They live in tropi=
countries thus they have no winter-summer. The chosen equinox is Northern=
hemisphere autum equinox. After Hangkerim is a secular society, most
Hangkerimians have forgotten the Religious origin of the holidays, but th=
conmemorate somethink like Creation and Passover. The full moon represen=
Creation of man and the year shift is the liberation of the people. This=
is called Kuramung
Kingdom of Kurimpe (one of the three Hangkerim countries) national holida=
three days after the Year Shift, thus it usually falls into Kuramung. Ki=
of Jemanha recognize three national holidays, non of them in Kuramung. R=
of Daluram has two national days: Kurera whish falls seven days before ye=
shift, and Roming wich is in the "Spring" Equinox.
