History of the Holiday
Have you heard the story of the Mysteries of Love holiday? It’s more interesting than Thais let on. The thing is, she herself is the reason for many of the events in this story. The Mysteries is a holiday that was born out of defiance. It was a protest against the cruel laws of Pablius Merulius, a leader known as Tyrant and Oppressor. Pablius was a very powerful, but also a deeply traumatized man. His childhood experiences made him fear love and any expression of feelings. He considered love to be some kind of deadly disease, so when he grew up and ascended to the throne, he tried to eliminate it completely.
Many ridiculous laws were adopted in those times: from fines for public displays of affection to bans on heart-shaped cookies. Personal lives became strictly regulated and people did not feel free even in their homes.
But the women of Pablius’s harem suffered the most, especially his favorite Thais. Thais really did love Pablius, but she could not express her feelings because it would have cost her life. In the end, despair was stronger than her self-preservation instinct: Thais took a risk and tried to get through to the ruler. She opened her heart to Pablius, but his heart remained locked and guarded.
To prove that Thais was wrong about the “power of love”, Pablius publicly punished her. Before the punishment, he said that if her love was that strong, it would save her.
When Thais’s breathless body fell to the ground, the crowd began to murmur. Love had long left the lives of the people, and now they suddenly realized how precious it was. A real uprising was brewing, but luckily it did not lead to bloodshed: Thais resurrected in front of everyone and stood before Pablius alive and radiant. The miracle and the huge armed mob were enough to change Pablius’s views on love. He cancelled all his laws, renounced his throne and only wanted one thing then – to become Thais’s first follower. Thais refused because she never forgave him. However, a great holiday was created on that day to mark the end of the Tyrant’s rule – the Holiday of Love which lasts a few weeks. During that time, anyone who desires it can find their true love. It would be more appropriate to call the holiday the Rising of Thais, but our modest goddess does not like to be reminded of that.
