For most of the other, slightly less unhinged members of League society, Reachmas Eve, Reachmas Day and the day after Reachmas Day (called Snapping Day) provide a triple-bank-holiday which is much appreciated by the hard working citizens of League society. It also provides an opportunity for family gatherings, social interactions or other such ventures.
Nevertheless, the true meaning of Reachmas is not known to a single member of the League. Only Jorgey knows the true meaning of Reachmas, and he keeps that secret locked firmly away. However, Father Reachmas will forever capture the imaginations of children everywhere no matter what the meaning of Reachmas may be, even if it does involve the PAIN.
