The Gratitude Festival is an annual Bajoran celebration of great importance to the Bajoran people. Also known as the Peldor Festival, it dates back as far back as 17600 BC.

Traditions Edit

The traditional greeting during the festival is "Peldor joi". Bateret leaves are traditionally burned, and participants write their problems on renewal scrolls which are then burned so that their troubles symbolically turn to ashes.

Celebration Edit

In 2369, Benjamin Sisko had hoped to make a three-day trip to Bajor with his son Jake Sisko to attend the Gratitude Festival and visit the Fire Caves. (DS9: "The Nagus")

In 2371, Deep Space 9 hosted its third annual celebration of the Gratitude Festival. Major Kira Nerys served as Presider of the Festival.(DS9: "Fascination")

While experiencing a pagh'tem'far in 2373, Benjamin Sisko believed he was in B'hala on the eve of the Festival. (DS9: "Rapture")

In 2374, at the request of the Emissary of the Prophets, the festival was held on Deep Space 9. (DS9: "Tears of the Prophets")

The logo seen on banners and flags during DS9: "Fascination" advertising the Festival incorporated parts of the logo seen on the uniforms of the medical personnel on Tantalus V and Elba II, namely the sun and the characteristic hand.
