The sound of a bell made her start. Another joined it, then another and another, until all over Tai-tastigon they were in full tongue. A shriller, less musical note chimed in from below. The Feast of Fools had ended. Standing at the kitchen door with kettle and iron ladle, Cleppetty was helping to beat in the new year.
– Jame's narration, God Stalk, "Chapter 7: The Feast of Fools"
Spring's Day is the first day of the year in the Tastigon Calendar, as well as the first day of the 60-day spring season. The day before is the Feast of Fools, the unmarked "361st day of the year". Two days before is Spring's Eve.
↑Honor's Paradox, "Chapter VII: The Day of Misrule", I — "Last night had been Spring’s Eve. Tomorrow was Spring’s Day. Between them lay a span of time unmarked on any calendar, separating the old year from the new."
