    The 28th of January is known as Brialla's Journey in Ultima Online and is considered a holiday. Here is some information about it:

    Brialla's Journey
    UP : Britannia

    Many years ago, long before Minoc was established as a true city, one woman dared to map the northlands of Britannia.

    Brialla of the Seven Tears (one of the elder monk orders, which would eventually be the cornerstone of Empath Abbey) was a woman of undeniable strength of spirit.

    Each member of Her order was required to commit to a personal quest for knowledge.

    She chose to map the unknown darklands of northern Britannia.

    Without shoes and clad in only the brown robes of her order she charted, recorded, illustrated, and kept an invaluable journal of her travels.

    It was she, in fact, who first discovered the rich mineral deposits in the mountains by Minoc.

    Every year, on this date, we celebrate her journey by donning the robes of simplest brown, and walking, barefoot to the town of Minoc.

    Once there, all followers should celebrate, discuss their memories of Brialla, and create new stories based upon her legend.

    Why didn't she wear shoes? How dumb is that?

    One would guess, that by acting that humble, that she would gain even more knowledge of humilty. Or perhaps, to reinforce the knowledge gained with pain, to remind her that knowledge does not come freely and requires a price.
