This is a Day of Cleansing, light fasting, sweat loges, saunas, yoga and walking, etc. The Sisterhood Physically, Mentally and Spiritually clears itself out and prepares for The Kalends of Primaria and the beginning of The New Year.

However, on a Leap Year, today would be the Day of Collapse that usually falls upon Fourth Turningday.

[The preceding year, 13AS, was not a Leap Year so today is not the Day of Collapse]

This is a Day of Collapse. Those who have Celebrated will sleep off the festivities of previous day and the Festival Guardians with catch their breath.

However, on Leap Years, this would be a Second Day of Indulgence and the Day of Collapse would be pushed forward one day. Of course it is expected that some will collapse anyway and no shame will be attached... though some teasing will be allowed.

This is a Day of Excessive Indulgence and Bad Behavior. For the Younglings, the day starts with the receiving of gifts and then they are allowed to eat as much cake and candy as they like. For the Adults, this is then followed by dancing, drinking, drugging, fucking without restraint or regret.

Certain members of The Sisterhood will be Festival Guardians. They will abstain and maintain Basic Services, watching the Younglings while doing their best to prevent overdoses and fatalities. Some will do this every year: our Sober Sisters, who will be the Elder Guardians. The others will volunteer one year and then join the festivities during the next few years.

This a Day of Preparation for The Festival itself. We clean and cook and bake and stock our larders. We primp ourselves and lay out our Party Dress.

This is a day of Deep Reflection and Assessment. We meditate upon The Year That Had Passed. We list goals achieved and goals not achieved. We examine what worked, what didn't work and what failed, which are not the same.

During Leap Years, this is the Day of Cleansing that usually falls upon Fifth Turningday.

[days 361-365/6] {Dec 21st through Dec 25th/Dec26th on Leap Years}

The Festival of The Turning, while numbered with the preceding year for 'accounting' purposes, is not actually part of that year nor of the forthcoming year. It is a purely inter-calendary period and all The Sisterhood's non-essential operations and activities are suspended for its duration.

The Festival of The Turning is named such because, this being a Universal Calendar, it will be different 'turnings' for Northern and Southern Hemispheres. In the North it will be a Winter Festival, while in the South it will be a Summer Festival. Because of this the Northern Festival will be mostly indoors and the Southern Festival will be mostly outdoors. It is expected that Sisters will travel to attend Turnings in both Hemispheres during their lifetimes. Beyond the general framework listed below, the details and traditions of each set of Turnings will be locally determined.

~And I do mean badly...

It seems I have fucked up on The Matriarchal Calendar this year, 12AS. The mistake is in how I oriented the years vis-a-vis The Festival of The Turning. Though it is an Intercalandary period, I thought it proper to aim it at the coming year, but I now realize that it needs to be aimed at the preceding year.

What this means in practical terms is that I have posted the entire year so far one day ahead. *sigh*

So what I'm going to do now it re-start from Right Now and proceed from there. And then, because this is fucking important and I am fucking Obsessive, I will go back over the entire past year and fix the dates. Every Single Entree.

I never said I was prefect...
