Actually, Umbra is more worshiped by men, than women. Some says it is because of her beauty, but actually, it‘s the sailors, who raises the men worshipers number. Umbra is the one, who controls water together with the Thedor and when winter is comming, usually these, who have a lot of business with the water world, prays for the Goddess to be gracious and stop the winter, stop the Inouv from freezing the running rivers, from freezing coasts and lakes.
Sometimes, if people impress Umbra by their sacrifices and prayers, and love to her, she joins the Inouv in his games. When Umbra join the games of Inouv the January is not so dark and not so freezing, moreover, Thedor does not have to fight Inouv before february, because Umbra lures away the Inouv with her mysterious dark shadows and unusual beauty and Thedor does not have to meet Underworld God in his way.

1st of December – Hunter's day
What is the best weapon for the hunter? Arrows. For this reason each hunter is archer and they have to pray for Umbra, asking accurateness and right winds. However, also hunters are in need of shadows if they want to catch the prey easily. So, when Umbra comes to the Earth bringing her shadows back, hunters throw the hunting feast. They fulfill the forests, hidding in the shadows and trying to catch the best prey ever. After the hunting trip, each hunter brings half of his prey to the temple of Umbra as sacrifice and thanks her for the good year, begging to bring another good year of hunting too.
This day is also celebrated by spies, because shadows are very important for their profession. Usually they are visiting temples and praying for Umbra, asking to give some knowledge about hidding in the shadows. Umbra is known as the best one, who can walk unseen and this is what all the spies asks for her: to grant them the same ability.

19th of December – the Day of Umbra
This day is archery tournament day. All the archers are asking for favourable wind from Umbra, and when her day comes, they are demonstrating their powers, gived them by Umbra for faithfulness.
Some of the tournaments are arranged just in small cities, but usually archers from whole world are gathered in one place, fighting for the golden arrow, which is believed was made by Umbra herself.
