The Year-End Traditions, also referred to as “The Holidays,” occur at the end of every Yamataian Calendar year (during the OOC month of December). While the significance of the holiday is debated to this day, it is commonly agreed by all those who celebrate it (everyone) that at the very least, the Year-End Holidays are meant to spread good cheer, good will, and good food among all Good folks.
The typical holiday colors are red, green, white, and gold.
The Star Army of Yamatai even has a special kit for the holidays: Star Army Holiday Kit, Type 36

No one is entirely sure where and when Holidays began, or that the holidays themselves were originally called Yule Tide. Thus far no one has been able to explain then just where in their history the holiday started. The holidays are mysterious in the sense that it has always been. Many, particularly the Elysians, believe the Holiday to have religious connotations, taking the message of Goodwill, Good Cheer, and Good Food and applying it as the will of a God or Goddess or The Gods. More Radical religious groups have taken to claiming that the Holiday is actually a celebration of the Birthday of a prophet or God, though very few take this notion of the Yule Tide Holidays very seriously, as in the end it doesn't matter where it came from, only that it is a season of Good Will, Good Cheer, and Good Food.
The reason for the holiday suddenly showing up IC in the RP should be explained by the occurrence of three factors:
Maybe after the holidays, plots that participate can post examples of traditions actually roleplayed.
