It seems like there should be a specific day that commemorates Orlanth's victory over/slaying of Yelm, but I'm not finding it listed. Is there a set day for this that I'm just missing in the sources, or do I need to make one up?

I expect Orlanthi usually don't celebrate it because Orlanth himself came to see it as a mistake he had to fix.

That being said, I'd suggest it be the first day of Storm Season, since Orlanth kicked off the Storm Age by killing Yelm.
