The Roman Festival of Larentalia was held on December 23rd, but was ordered to be observed twice a year by Augustus; by some supposed to be in honour of the Lares, a kind of domestic genii, or divinities, worshipped in houses, and esteemed the guardians and protectors of families, supposed to reside in chimney-corners. Others have attributed this feast in hounour of Acca Larentia, the nurse of Romulus and Remus, and wife of Faustulus.
