Description

Caristia, or Cara cognatio, was a Roman feast day that fell on the 22nd of February, between the Feralia and the Terminalia. It is the occasion of family reunion, on this day Roman fathers would pay special attention to their families. This particular festival did not have any religious obligations or affiliations, and was considered by some to be a break in February for Romans from the multitude of festivals celebrated in this month.

See Ovid's Fasti.
