Pharple Day is a traditional Lokian holiday held at the conclusion ofthe harvest season. The early settlers on the planet were particularlygrateful to Felanto, a Native Feeorin and former outlaw who taught themhow to grow corn.
Without Felanto's assistance, the setters might not have survived onthe colonized planet. Pharple Day meals are traditional family eventswhere a variety of delicious foods and served.
First and foremost, Pharple is the featured item in most feasts.Stuffing, mashed potatoes with Gurk Gravy, sweet potatoes, KimogilaKranberry sauce, Lokian corn, turnips, and Smuggler Pie are commonlyassociated with Pharple Day dinner.
Guests often bring food items or help with the cooking as part of the communal meal.
In keeping with the holiday theme of putting aside differences to givethanks, during the socializing or meal, people talk about what they arethankful for or share their experiences during the past year which havecaused them to feel grateful.
Thank you everyone, for joining us in Aventine Spaceport!
Happy Pharple Day!
