因为Iliac海湾地区有着丰富的历史,所以我们对该地区拥有如此众多独特的节日并不感到惊奇.布莱顿文化和红色守卫文化有很多的相似点,当然它们之间也有很多不同之处.研究这些节日也成为了了解当地居民的一种手段.

有一些学生可能会问我,红色守卫是Tamriel大陆的新移民;尽管那是几千年之前(第一纪元的808年).但文字已经记载下了他们到达这片大陆的日期. 那时的Hammerfell行省是一大片沙漠周围则环绕着许多不可逾越的高山.那里无人定居而且被人们视作多余之地.所以今天的很多在 Hammerfell行省的节日都可以被看作是红色守卫移居到Tamriel之前传统节日的直接转化.

这些狂欢的节日庆典随着季节的不同在每个月都会变化.在每年日晓的第28天,Banthan丛林里的红色守卫就会一起进行对Aduros Nau的庆典,以便驱除冬季带来的那种毫无生气的气氛;在年中的第一天,Abibon-Gora的人便会对代表太阳的神灵Drigh R’Zimb进行庆典,但那天的庆典活动普通红色守卫居民是不会参与的;类似的还有日高的第29天,这个节日是在沙漠中进行的被人们称作"燃烧之夜",看起来好像比较邪门;末种第11日在Sentinel举行的Koomu Alezer’i节又被翻译成"感恩收获节",许多学者都认为以前这应该是个在春天的节日;而末种第14天在Bantha的"猛虎之宴"以前则可能是一个为纪念虎神的宗教性节日.

其它一些红色守卫节日则是古代红色守卫传统节日和红色守卫们为了适应Hammerfell地区气候的融合产物.在Satakalaam的节日"巨蛇之舞" 就是一个很好的例子,这是一个为纪念那位在前往Tamriel大陆的旅程中死亡的蛇神而创立的节日.日暮的第3天是一个重要的日子,在那一天蛇神和那些巨蛇牧师们消失了.在夜星的第18天的Baranth Do节和同一月第24天的Chil’a节都是新年节.为了以Tamriel大陆的纪年法为准它们原有的日期都被更改过了.

和红色守卫相比,布莱顿人在Tamriel大陆的历史就要长的多了;在有文字记载之前他们就已经在Tamriel生活了.从远古时期到现在他们的节日一直保持不变,当然现在也有一些新的节日被创造出来以替代那些已经不被人们关注的旧节日.

目前在High Rock行省还存在的最古老节日当属在每年晨星第18天的"苏醒日".那些居住在Yeorth Burrowland的居民将会在那一天唤醒在冬季中沉睡的众多灵魂,这和他们那些尊敬的祖先的做法很相似.每年初种的第25天在High Rock乡间庆祝的"鲜花日"也是非常古老的节日之一.在Tamarilyn Point地区的人们则会在雨手的第一天来纪念古代的鲜花教会.雨手第13日是Daggerfall王国的"死节",人们在那天会依照布莱顿人的传统来祭拜先祖.最后,在Glenumbra Moors地区的日暮第8天会有纪念古代月神Secunda的"月节",在那以后年内的夜晚会变长.

在High Rock地区最近才被确立的节日有的和帝国有关.比如说"Tiber日",每年年中的第24天将会庆祝这个节日以纪念Alcaire的伟大的儿子 Tiber Septim.在日晓第25天的Othroktide节则是纪念第一位而且也是最杰出的Dwynnen男爵.和这些节日不同的是次种第9日举行的 “Marukh之日”;这是一个非常庄重的节日,是为了使第一纪元的先知Marukh讲过的那些庄重的课程成为不朽.我个人最爱的现代布莱顿节日是"疯狂的Pelagius",这个节日是为了嘲弄那位怪异的帝国皇帝的而创立的.Pelagius在成为Solitude的国王之前曾经是Wayrest王国的王子,不过最后他还是当上了Tamriel帝国的皇帝.布莱顿人经常在外人面前吹嘘Pelagius在High Rock的时候就已经疯了.

Holidays of the Iliac Bay
by Theth-i
An overview of Breton and Redguard holidays commonly celebrated in the Iliac Bay region

The region of the Iliac Bay has a rich history, and not surprisingly, a number of holidays unique to it because of this history. The Breton and the Redguard cultures have many similarities, but just as many distinctions. An analysis of the holidays is one way to study the people. As any schoolchild could tell you, the Redguards are a relatively new culture to Tamriel. Their arrival from their homeland is actually well recorded, though it occured [sic] several thousand years ago, in the 808th year of the1st EraHammerfell was a great desert encompassed by almost impassable mountains -- unclaimed and unwanted. Many of the holidays extant in modern Hammerfell seem to be direct translations of older Redguard festivals before their migration to Tamriel. The orgiastic seasonal celebrations seem unusual in a province with few changes in the weather from month to month. Yet on the 28th of Suns Dawn, the Redguards of the Banthan jungle celebrate Aduros Nau to relieve the wintertide lethargy; on the 1st of Mid Year, the people of Abibon-Gora celebrate Drigh R'Zimb in honor of the sun, which no normal Redguard worships in this day; similarly, on the 29th of Suns Height, the festival in the Desert called Fiery Night, seems almost perverse in such an environment; the Koomu Alezer'i on the 11th of Last Seed in Sentinel has been translated as a harvest thanksgiving, though many scholars have suggested that it was once a springtide holiday; similarly, the Feast of the Tiger in the Bantha on the 14th of Last Seed was probably once a religious holiday to a Tiger God, instead of a thanksgiving. Other old Redguard holidays have either been acknowledged as part of the old culture or adjusted to fit with the climate of Hammerfell. The Serpent's Dance, for example, of Satakalaam is patently an old festival honoring a Serpent God of the homeland who evidently did not survive the journey to Hammerfell. The significance of the date, the 3rd of Suns Dusk, has been lost with the Serpent Priests. Baranth Do, on the 18th of Evening Star, and Chil'a, on the 24th of the same month, are both New Years festivals. Most likely, they have been moved from their original dates to correspond with the notion of the year defined in Tamriel.
The Bretons have been in Tamriel since before recorded history. Their holidays have remained almost unchanged since primitive times, though new holidays have been created to replace those which have lost popularity. The oldest holidays still observed in High Rock must include Waking Day, on the 18th of Morning Star, when the people of the Yeorth Burrowland wake the spirits of nature after the winter, very nearly in the tradition of their more reverential ancestors. Flower Day, held on the 25th of First Seed in the smaller villages of High Rock is most likely just as old or older. The old cult of the flower is also remembered as Gardtide in Tamarilyn Point on the 1st of Rains Hand. Daggerfall's Day of the Dead, on the 13th of Rains Hand, suggests the ancestor worship that marked the Breton religion of antiquity. Finally, the ancient goddess of the moons, Secunda, is remembered in the Moon Festival inGlenumbra Moors on the 8th of Suns Dusk, just as the nights begin to grow longer. The more recently created holidays of High Rock are those like Tibedetha, "Tibers Day," celebrated every 24th of Mid Year in honor of Alcaire's most famous, son, Tiber Septim. Likewise, Othroktide on the 5th of Suns Dawn is held in honor of the first and most illustrious Baron of Dwynnen. In quite extreme contrast, Marukh's Day on the 9th of Second Seed, is a solemn holiday, immortalizing the lessons of the equally solemn 1st Era prophet Marukh. My favorite of the modern Breton festivals has to beMad Pelagius, held in mock honor of the most eccentric of the Septim Emperors. Pelagius was, after all, a prince of Wayrest before he became King of Solitude, and then Emperor of Tamriel. The Bretons like to boast that it was his time in High Rock that drove him mad.
