Longmeal is a day of revelry and massive feasting that follows a day of fasting. People fast the whole day before Longmeal to cleanse themselves of any burdens and purify their souls. It is seen as a test of a person's willpower to abstain from any nourishment for a day. The resulting feast is typically paid for by the lord of the nearby area, and larger cities will sometimes fill up the town square with all manner of delectable items for the commoners to partake in. This is a tradition that helps strengthen the bond between a leader and their people.
Those who worship Raltazan hold this as their holiest day, as the light of his fire fills the sky for longer than normal. They see the fasting as something that makes them stronger, which pleases Raltazan.
