The 1st of Morning Star marks the beginning of the New Life Festival, which takes place across all of Tamriel in celebration of the new year. The Emperor usually uses his New Life Address to instigate another tax increase which often causes much resentment. Despite this, the New Life tradition of free ale at all of the taverns of Tamriel continues.[source?] In some areas, particularly Wayrest, the New Life Festival is celebrated on the 25th of Evening Star.[OOG 1].

Prince Naemon refers to the situation at Tanzelwil as being similar to this festival, since "the family's been drinking since noon, and everyone wants you dead". [1]
