The Day of the Rose Sun is a day that marks the change of the coastal winds that carry the Sifa to and from Cera-Na to Ha'rar. During this change, the Sifa migrate farther west, until the winds return to their easterly routes. They celebrate this change of season and direction in the traditional Gelfling way, with meditation and observance of the Rose Sun’s path through making and lighting candles. Some Sifa release the candles into the air in dyed paper lanterns, specially made to catch fire when they reach great heights, igniting in balls of multicolored flame overhead before dissolving into silvery ash.[1]
