Vernal Equinox

<< Begin Transmission>>

Botany Bay Colony on Nova, Gaia celebrated the traditional start of Spring on the Pan-Galactic Calender yesterday with a traditional Moot. Held on the North East Shore of the Colony’s main isle, the revelers greeted the Equinox’s sunrise with fires, dancing and other more carnal activities. Long a festival of rebirth and fertility, the Vernal Equinox signals the traditional transition from the long dark winter, to the  fertile time of planting and life of spring. The Hengeyokai Sentai of Botany Bay was well represented at the event, with Khans Jubilynn and Serus joined by the Ahurn Jagerwolf.

Colonists and visitors alike were invited to join in the drinking and dancing that often leads to passion filled coupling in the early dawn hours. Not to disappoint, Khan Jubilynn herself was seen, partaking in the evenings events, her exploits with the Elven Mechanic Eric taking center stage.

Not all visitors partook of the evenings activities. While several colonist and visitors partook of the old traditions and gave homage to the old ways, several crew members of the visiting USS Carolina looked on in abject disdain over the ‘heathen’ activities. One green-skinned Junior LT. was overheard comparing the event and her XO’s participation in it as the antics of “drunken first year cadets”.

The Old Ways tell of the Vernal Moot as being a time for Fertlity and rebirth, the Celbration is known for its public couplings or displays of affection. Khan Jubilynn and Eric gave the most, energetic, puclic entertainment during this years event, leaving nothing to the imagination of the other celibratents.

While the Equinox is the traditional start of spring, the more family friendly celebration of the Start of Summer, Beltane, is the next Traditional celebration to be held at the colony, scheduled for 1 May.  Hengeyokai Sentai on many Protectorate worlds host public traditional celebrations of the old ways, as a way of connecting the  people with the past, while moving them forward into the future.
