No Tiber Septim day for sure. He wasn't born yet.

Martin Septim was also quite definitely not born either.
I would imagine there would be festival holidays for the gods, maybe for harvests, etc.

I'd imagine the day the people of tamriel were free from the aylid opression and the dissapearance of the last known(since parthanux is bing stealth mode) dragon would be celebrations kinda like independence day(though don't live in US so wouldn't know what it's like).

Also regional events perhaps like the bosmer may have a yearly hidden family traditions like import bread as was it skoma and delight in it's non-meat taste(though they may be allowed to import those things idk they import wood since well they love bows and aren't allowed to fell any of their own trees).

The conquest of the imperial city and the day the second empire was founded maybe, the altmer may celebrate the construction of the crystal tower....something like that I'd imagine.

So septims decendant uriel septim had an illegitimate child which turned into the avatar of the god of time and as his physical body turned to stone his soul was sent back into time getting stuck in a glacier?

Holidays could be tied to deities, i.e. Aedra and Daedra.

Also, there was a good community article on TF about this some time ago.

Most games seem to pair up major holidays in game with real life holidays. Its just the curse of MMOs, however, I am hoping that TESO will take holidays that they want to put in game and make them more in keeping with the overall theme of the game. I doubt they can really put in a similar character as Santa Claus but they maybe able to make a holiday during that stretch of time that would be similar in traditions.

I would assume that we would see holidays/festivals for spring and fall since most cultures have celebrated the start of the growing seasons and the harvest. Whether they have those festivals to promote success or afterwards to celebrate the completion.

I do agree that the one thing I really dislike about some MMOs (especially WoW) is that transparent transfer of Real Life Holidays into in game holidays. I'd much prefer the holidays to be similar but unique rather then shoved in and "tweaked" to crudely fit in game.

Would be neat if they had TES theme celebrations as minor npc area related things in TES time that way you'd have an annual thing 60 times in game per irl year.

Some sort of celebration after a member of your alliance becomes emperor would be cool.
