Winter Festivals in Korovia
Druids travel about the land following the Winter Solstice giving out gifts usually made from Holly and Mistletoe. Common folk refer to this period as the "Holly Days".
Common gifts include Holly Water / Tea (useful as a digestive and also combats rheumatism, fever, high blood pressure), wooden toys for children (wooden swords, shields, bows, arrows, etc), herbal teas, Holly symbols, superstitious protective charms, and a variety of other gifts.
Peasants and nobles alike also exchange gifts, but it is the wandering druids who really draw the attention of children as the druids give out sweets such as candied apples, hot taffy, candied nuts, caramel corn, maple syrup candy and more.
Adults frequently celebrate the Winter Solstice and Holly Days with a variety of games, sporting competitions (darts is really popular as it can be played indoors), and a significant amount of drinking of vodka, mulled wine and spiced ales.
