Centaur holidays often celebrate the sun as a life-giving power, both physically and spiritually. The Centaurs mainly worshiped the Sun God, Varick, and they celebrated him during the Midsummer Festival of Fertility. During this festival, many symbols of fertility are used to bless the crop fields of the valley. Some of these symbols include the use of eggs, honey, milk, and seed. This festival traditionally begins on 21 of the Month of the Sun. The celebrations consist of elaborate dances and the wearing of many bright colors and a massive feast. Originally, animal sacrifices were offered in hopes of an abundant year, but now gifting of the harvest is more common tradition.
