In your stories, what would count as welcome breaks for the general populace? Do they have holidays and how are they celebrated? Are visitors welcome to join in or are they kept out? I look at Winter Traditions in my Chandler's Ford Today post this week - what would these be in the world you're creating? Is there such a thing as winter? (I suspect we often wish there wasn't but it is necessary, honestly!).
Is everyone in your world celebrating a special holiday or is that the privilege of the ruling classes? What makes the holiday different from what we know here? What are the similarities? Does everyone enjoy the break?
Now there's some story ideas there for you! Happy writing!
