Um... I suppose, but to what point? To do so would be excluding part of the Clan.

I mean, this holiday is for EVERYONE, not just Drow or Ferals as I consider both species part of what it means to be Tei'Kaliath. Holidays should be for everyone. Something to bring us all together. Why ruin such an endeavor with promoting one race over the other? :(

Thus I won't deny such an entry, but at the same time I would not be pleased to see such an entry either and I'm pretty sure that's how the other judges will view it as well. ^^;


Why not something akin to a multicultural festival? Our clan is no longer strictly composed of native Tei'kaliaths; we also got laths, ssus, mims, halfbloods and ferals. A holiday that celebrates the many different backgrounds and cultures that has come under a single roof that is the Tei'kaliath, for it is diversity that makes our clan stronger.

Well, we did briefly consider "No Pants Friday", but that didn't seem to receive much interest. And city founding day was declined because we couldn't decide when the city was founded and Kern wouldn't tell us. And the Running of the Tiktikkies was rather quickly swept under the table.

Huh. Weird. You'd think in a drow community starving for a population boost, the idea of "No Pants, Except Friday" would have caught on pretty well.

Do you you really need a definitive date? Can't you just have a celebration regarding the founding of Ama'varde and leave the specifics of dates nebulous? Besides, nothing here gets denied, it just has to compete with the other submissions. So really, if that is deemed desireable as a holiday than someone should present it to Jai.

Nuff said?

I'm thinking of celebrating the day Anjhali first arrived at our young colony to lead us in person once more, the day we first got to show her our beautiful colony and achievements. I'd consider it a pretty significant day to our people and we have the advantage of knowing the exact date, it was during the second moon, day 5, in the winter. Now I just have to decide how exactly to celebrate it.

My "Feral Festival" idea was somewhat of a "Memorial Day" for Mirual and Orrul and the others. They never got anything. We were working to figure something out to help honor them, but nothing was ever decided before the time skip.

I suppose that some sort of general Memorial/Military Rememberance Day might be a nice thing. This was just a thought.

A suggestion: There's been quite a few contests for various clan events it seems, so one idea could be to combine a mix into one. There's nothing saying you can't have various events.

This was in no way influenced by the potential idea of a pantless holiday.

Edit: @Rilla, I would like to say you can as the more the merrier, but the ultimate authority would be Jai'byrd.

Yes, you can submit more than one entry.

Well then now you have four. I don't intend it as a joke, it's the type of holiday I've always dreamed of having, but I guess it could be mistaken as such.

I'm still working on another one! Having a hard time working out the details.
