First occurrence:
.?.
Fontinalia was an ancient Roman festival
to honor Fontus, the god of wells and springs.
💧

During the celebrations of Fontinalia fountains and
wellheads throughout the city were decorated with
garlands of flowers and petals and flowers were thrown in
to float around like merrily colored confetti.

This is a day to celebrate water sources.
Many of us take clean drinkable water from a tap
in the house for granted.

Many other people on this world are not so lucky.

Celebrate when you feel grateful for the water supply you have.
