Shelova Week was a holiday in the Tapani Sector. It was a traditional Herglic holiday that celebrated commerce and family (which were interrelated in the Herglic race). It was a prominent holiday in many systems, especially where nobility was part of society.
Shelova Week was a time to exchange gifts, make new business alliances, discuss trade arrangements, and spend time with family members. As the Human population of the sector began interacting with the Herglics, they too began celebrating the holiday, although many Humans simply took the vacation instead of also developing business partnerships.
On the Galactic standard calendar, Shelova Week fell between the months of Helona and Melona. The holiday coincided with the Coruscanti Festival of Life, which also was celebrated with parties, family get-togethers and gift-giving. Some species would use this festival to arrange marriages for their offspring.
Other names used for Shelova Week included "Festival of Life" and "Family Week".
