Holidays

Halloween
Halloween has always been an OOC-IC event, in that it's something our members sometimes wanted to celebrate and we did so with our characters in roleplay, but it's not really an Elysian holiday (which is to say that we no longer have an IC Halloween event, but we have done in the past and they were immense fun).
Xanth Day
Xanth Day is celebrated on the 8th of Thanatas? to honour the goddess, Xanth, on her birthday. No one is actually sure if this date is her birthday or not, but Elysians celebrate in various, excessive ways.


Xanth Day is also when we celebrate EF's official anniversary to honour the game's creation in June 2006 and its subsequent move to faroah.com in August the same year. Events to honour our birthday last from June 1st with Summer Camp through to August 30th.
