Overview

The Festival of New Beginnings is about just that, rebirth, starting over and new chances. The festival takes place immediately after the winter passes, the plants begin to sprout from the ground and flowers begin to bloom. The main festival is held in Avar, though the other cities and villages hold their own version of the festival for those who are unable to make the long trip to the capital.

History
The Festival

The festival begins with friendly contests and competitions, followed by presentations and blessings of children born within the previous few months. After the blessings, any marriage ceremonies planned for this day are conducted, followed by a huge feast of celebration.

It is considered lucky to have children born at a time who are able to be blessed during the Festival of New Beginnings, as well as any marriage ceremonies.
