Adopting holidays from many cultures will be a worthwhile adventure. This might fit into "Book of Hours" class. Researching, sharing, treasure hunting with only the purpose of selecting a meaningful ritual for each month. Unless I find something better along the way, I think the solstices and the equinoxes mark quarters perfectly, honoring the physical universe which holds the power of life itself. There's the day of atonement, which I love; the Day of the Dead for which we thank those who go before us. There should be a day of Friendship. A day of Family? for which I'll mourn.
