A Culture Shared

From harvest festivals to parades marking the passage of the seaons, Eorzea has long been home to colorful local celebrations. It is not until the year 1470 of the Sixth Astral Era, however, that such traditions began to expand past their regional borders into the Eorzea-wide celebrations we know today.

With the Autumn War at its end, the era that followed was marked by peace and the proliferation of trade. Owing to the advent of the chocobo carriage, overland routes extended across the realm, and the adoption of gil as a common currency saw coin flow freely across national borders.

As wares and their peddlers began to roam, so too did culture. Ul'dah's great caravans brought not only supplies and sundries to distant lands, but tales of unfamiliar customs as well. For instance, Little Ladies' Day, celebrated in the sultanate since 1267, captured faraway hearts—and coinpurses—with its Legend of the Lost Lady. With both intellectual curiosity and economic interest driving their rise to prominence, it is little surprise that several once-local traditions became a source of shared joy throughout the realm, and proud symbols of Eorzean culture.

— Encyclopaedia Eorzea Volume III, p. 54

Seasonal Events are special occasions that occur at a particular time of the year. During these festivals, players can complete seasonal quests and obtain unique cosmetic items. Additionally, cities around Eorzea are decorated according to the themes of the events. Moonfire Faire, the first event in A Realm Reborn, takes place around September. The regularly scheduled events include: Heavensturn (New Years), Valentione's Day (Valentine's), Little Ladies' Day (Hinamatsuri), Hatching-tide (Easter), The Make It Rain Campaign, Moonfire Faire (Bon), The Rising (ARR anniversary), All Saints' Wake (Halloween), and Starlight Celebration (Christmas).

Seasonal event quest completion is associated with several achievements. Because these quests are limited-time, the achievements usually become unobtainable once the event has passed.
