Elizabethan Customs & Festivals played a major role in Elizabethan Life. The Feasts, Fairs and Festivals were all held at the same time of year giving Elizabethan people something to look forward to in their everyday Elizabethan lives. The Customs and Festivals were generally related to the Church. All Elizabethans were expected to attend Church every Sunday so were very aware of the customs and festivals which were celebrated within the Church calendar (The black Death Bubonic Plague during Elizabethan era).
