Time: 1st to 7th of Needfest
Needfest is one of the four 1-week-long months that occur during the year. While not exactly a festival, Needfest is still seen somewhat as a celebratory week, and most general workplaces tend to be far more lenient.
The entire week of Needfest encompasses aspects from the previous week-long “fests”, with feasting, drinking, light, charity and is seen as a time to help those in need. Alongside that, it is also seen as a time to be thankful for what one has received during the year, and to pay thanks to those most important people in their lives with small gifts.
