Quantar Holiday Returns to Its Roots

UUNN Newswire

(Petrios, Quanus) Quantar leaders decided this year to return the ancient Miners’ Days holiday to its roots, which traditionally focused on local, dirtside parades and traditions.

“We just thought it was a time to do something different,” said First Tahir Penjia Neamru.

“For a number of years, we’ve had large, well-publicized events and contests.  And it was a good thing.  But Miners’ Days has very humble roots.  Spontaneous local parades are the true Quani tradition — with miners putting away their tools for the day, and marching through streets singing traditional miners’ reels, and carrying ceremonial shovels, chisels or picks (which are often heirlooms handed down for generations). It’s just a day of good-natured revelry with family, friends and neighbors,” she added.

The First Tahir did point out that a Faction Mission for the holiday was launched, and that Temples in all cities, town and stations will be performing the traditional Blessing of the Shovels and having readings of the Parable of Karadron.
