Nights of enjoyment, mystery and community-spirit
When the summer months come forth in Wodila'hei, the Selian nights begin. It's a common tradition in Mailessi especially, were there are many Losheeans. Many of the other ethnicities join in on the festivites as well, if they live in a country that hosts the Selian nights. There are many different things to do during the Selian nights, if you want to attend, of course.
Activities during the Selian Nights
The Selian Nights are held every single evening of the week, except for Sundays, through the week of July. Not everyone participates every evening, but there are many who do if they have the time.
When the Selian Nights are held, there are many people out on the streets when it's dark and they stay outside for hours. Some people spend their nights working in food stalls so they can sell food to those who might become hungry. The decorations of the food stalls are very important and they're usually decked out in bright colours and bathed in light from multiple torches.
The food served are common dishes from the area. In Mailessi they usually make food from their family's Recipe books.
The big market-squares and town-squares always have at least one group of musicians making the evening more festive. It's common to stumble upon a large group all playing together and people joining in and singing if they know the songs. It can be hard to sleep if you're at home because the music echoes through the streets.
During the evening, many flock to the temples to pray to Arkna together. It's a special type of prayer since many pray alone and in silence usually. At the ceremonial joint prayers, everyone stands together with closed eyes, praying out loud in murmurs and holding hands. It's a great way for the participants to bond.
