I've been looking around the internet and doing my research in the library and there seems to be quite a lot of festivals and special dates, when you add them all together it comes up to almost one everyday! I haven't the time or means to throw a big celebration every other day and I was wondering how others do it.

So how do you do it? Celebrating all the festivals but in a small way? Constructing your own calendar with dates that feel special and relevant to you? Choosing the calendar of one city and sticking to it? Or not doing it at all? What do you do these dates come? I'd love to hear what everyone does and sorry for all the questions. Smiley

One thing that must be remembered is that many of the festivals on the ancient calendar were more civic than religious.  So you could easily cut those out and celebrate the major religious ones.  Since every polis had its own calender, most people who follow ancient calendars pick one and stick to it (the Athenian Calender is probably the most popular for the simple reason we know more about it).

Personally, when I was more of a Recon I tried to create my own religious calendar based on my locality.
