Spring's Eve in the Tastigon Calendar is the day before the Feast of Fools, and two days before Spring's Day.[2]


In Tai-tastigon, city charters for such things as inns fall due on Spring's Eve, presumably so that they are ready for the new year when it comes.[3]


Women's WorldEdit

Young women in the Women's Halls make their vows of sister-kinship on Spring's Eve, exchanging crocus flowers.[4] It is at about this time of year that travel between the Keeps of the Riverland becomes feasible after the long winter, and Highborn women send their sister-kin vow gifts such as token cloths embroidered with the news of the winter season in the knot-stitch code.[5]

  2. 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."
  3. God Stalk, Book II: Crown of Nights, "Chapter 5: Winter Days" — " 'Tubain won't be able to renew our charter when it falls due come Spring's Eve…' "
  4. Seeker's Mask, "Part I", I — "Even on Spring's Eve, they had to dig into snow banks for the crocus with which to make their vows,"
  5. Seeker's Mask, "Part I", II — "Adiraina touched the worn shawl draped across her shoulders. It had arrived on Spring's Eve almost a century ago, after a winter's enforced silence: Kinzi's vow gift, the stitched record of her winter days."
