Robigalia Day

A national Roman holiday. An agricultural festival celebrated with prayers and sacrifices to head off wheat rust disease and ask for protection of corn crop
also a day for celebrating male sex workers.

So that's what I was doing many many years ago when I took part in a procession with banners and crosses around our small town and out into the surrounding field - I was celebrating what was then called Rogation Day

 male sex workers were never mentioned.
