Dolethfest (Five Fingers)

A considerably more sober festivity for Five Fingers, Dolethfest is marked to honor those lost at sea. It's not a proper holiday since no one takes the day off - even the sailors - but in the evening they set lanterns adrift in the outgoing tide. Each lantern represents someone who died at sea but is remembered by the living. There are words spoken at certain docks and at gatherings of those who have lost friends or family. It's somber watching the lights float out to sea, and it's a reminder of the old Dirgenmast ships in ancient times.
