Empire Builder - Holiday/Festival Outline

Give the citizens of your empire a well deserved holiday!

Holidays and festivals and can be a vital part of an empires history and morale. They serve as reminders of events of history, to honour those who have gone and to teach new citizens the importance of certain traditions, even if the original meaning has been lost.

They can bring people together or be a time of immense stress. Whatever the reason, it is almost unheard of for an empire to not at least one holiday or festival.
