Between The Lines
A blue light appears before you and greets you with a sing song voice,
"Hey There! You're a guest right? Welcome to The Forum."
The Blue light sparkles over the register button for a moment,
"you know you can find so much more in here if you join us."
She flares brightly once more and then disappears.

Parentalia (Dies parentales)

Post  RosieBell on Sun 16 Feb 2014 - 19:25

Parentila (or Dies Parentales) is an Ancient Roman festival held for eight and a half days, from noon on the 13th of February to the 22nd of February in honour of the ancestors.
The Festival was essentially a private celebration of the rites of deceased family members. It was gradually extended, however, to incorporate the dead in general. During the days of the festival, all temples were closed, no weddings could be performed and public officials suspended business for the duration of the festival. On the last day a public ceremony, the Feralia, was held, during which offerings and gifts were placed at the graves and the anniversary of the funeral feast was celebrated.
