Sarenrae's holy symbol.

Candlemark is a Sarenite holiday celebrated on the winter solstice.[1]

It is a personal holiday for members of the faith, a remembrance of when and why they joined the church. By tradition it is held at the winter solstice, representing that even during the sun's weakest day, Sarenrae's power to heal and redeem is still with her faithful. In most human cultures, children may declare themselves members of the church on the first Candlemark after their fifteenth birthday. How they celebrate is a matter of personal taste: some hold a feast, some go on a pilgrimage, and some spend the day in prayer. This holiday is particularly meaningful to redeemed evil folk who have found forgiveness in the light of Sarenrae.[1]

The day is also seen as a time to look forward to longer days.[2]
