This would definitely add quite a bit of lore/flavor to the game, but it would be better to make it a specific solar month/season of the year.

Instead of just gaining influence, I want to modify my suggestion in that you can gain or lose the whole spectrum of RCI based on your actions.

Lol - "Server Maintenance" holiday for the Acutians - love it.

I'd like to add the idea of celebrations of major events that get created as a result of player actions/ in game events (Independence day/week for a given planet, celebrated each year on the aniversary the planet was taken by the <agressor> from those dastardly <conquered>!"

Peace with the Hydral Day! Celebrated on the annivessary of the date you first got to 90 influence with that race (and only if relations stay >= 90 thereafter). A credit (or equivalent) bonus is given to the player to celebrate his beneficience.

Oh - that opens the possibility for a "tribute" mechanic... I'll stop here. :)
