La Shoshain is the holiest day for the Fae, occurring once per year.
La Shoshain commemorates the sacrifice made by The Blood King to end The Great War. It is a day of peace and neutrality when Fae are not allowed to use their powers, feed on humans, or commit Fae-on-Fae violence.
It is the only day when the rules that keep Light Fae and Dark Fae separated are relaxed and both clans can socialize together. Trick considers it a sacred spiritual day, but ruefully admits that many Fae simply drink, eat and "fornicate."
La Shoshain likely means "Peace Day" – deriving from the Irish Gaelic word "Lá" which means "Day," and "Síochána" which means "Peace."
