Originally, the date marked the conquest of Aspex the Even-Tongued, who brought the nations of Galt, Andoran and Isger under Chelish control. Since the death of Aroden and the loss of these nations, the holiday instead marks the loss of territory and glory once held by Cheliax. Oaths are sometimes made, typically to Asmodeus,1 and rarely of a pleasant nature (such as the reclaiming of the lost empire and vengeance against treacherous former allies).
Citizens wear black on this day, public speaking is forbidden, and old feuds and vendettas are rekindled.2
