No, but they weren't unified in the first place. Frex, the Brithini don't have holy days. They assemble when the zzaburi need to perform magical rituals on days where the zzaburi have determined that casting that magic is particularly auspicious.

The Irensavalists have a long laundry list of festivals that bears no resemblence to the Jrusteli festival calendar that was so popular throughout the Middle Sea Empire. That list got radically changed by King Siglat, and the New Hrestoli calendar is sui generis (but perfectly aligned with its claims). The Jonatings are Theyalans who periodically gather up their peasants to perform rituals to empower their wizard's spells (while meanwhile they offer sacrifices to Orlanth, Humakt, Storm Bull, and Banat). Junora is a mishmash.

In short, Fronela is all over the map.
