Acorn Day - Culture
Written By: Elizabeth Barrette (Writer), Jenny Heidewald (Artwork)
A celebration of fatherhood honored through much of the Empire.
 
 

The Southern fable 'The Acorn Coat' comes from a mountainous region. It inspired the local holiday "Acorn Day" in autumn, which honors fatherhood and the role of fathers as family providers. Traditional feast foods include breads and cakes made from acorn flour, along with venison and fish when available. New fathers are customarily presented with a fine brown coat with buttons shaped like acorns and carved from oak wood. The celebration of Acorn Day has since spread through much of the Empire.
