Traveler's Day

Traveler’s Day is an annual holiday observed by the Church of the Journey on January 1st. It originated in the Croshaw system in 2905 when a small gathering of Journeymen who had grown up together convened to exchange their experiences over the previous year. They repeated their actions the following year, and the next, wherever they were, thus spreading the practice until it became tradition. Traveler’s Day activities include storytelling, a potluck feast, games, and a 20 km walk known as the Pilgrimage that begins at midnight local time. At the end of the walk, stories are swapped until sunrise. The largest Traveler’s Day gathering in the United Empire of Earth (UEE) occurs in New Arden on Cestulus (Davien II), attracting thousands of visitors annually.
