Brightfest is a unique Holy day celebrated by Shifters for the coming of Spring. It lasts for the first three days of Therendor. During Brightfest, Shifters celebrate late into the night with song, dance and athletic competitions similar to the Shifter game Hrazhak. In agricultural communities, Shifters use Brightfest to blow off steam, celebrate the end of the Winter season and to prepare for the hard work of the planting season.
Shifter adventurers are often reluctant and unenthusiastic about travelling during Brightfest as it is the one time of year Shifters are use to celebration and boisterous social interaction.
