    Apparently there is Sub-Commander Day, dedicated to Autobot Second-In-Commands.

    Is there anymore?

    • Allspark Day is Easter
    • Festival of Lost Light is Halloween
    • Unity Day is like Independence Day
    • Chosen One Day is like Christmas but made up by Starscream
    • Motherboard Day should be obvious

    Do they celebrates Jesus's birthday? It's really ironic since they mostly believe in Primus, and another thing, are there Christians Cybertronians?

    No they don't because that's a human concept and Transformers would have no idea about some Earth man from thousands of years ago who people believed to be the son of God.

    I think festival of lost light is more akin to veterans day and chinese lantern festivals. The whole point seems to be remembering and honouring comrades and friends lost during the cybertronian wars. It's not even close to halloween which involves dressing as monsters and children collecting candy off of neighbours.

    I'm going to reverse the order of your quote here because my response flows better this way and sounds less clunky...

    That's only Halloween in modern America. That's actually not even what Halloween is about, that's just what candy corporations turned it into so they could sell more candy.

    Which is actually closer the true original purpose of Halloween hence the comparison to Halloween. Mexicans actually still celebrate Halloween this way. Have you seen the movie Coco? That's what Halloween is really about not dressing in costumes and collecting candy. All Hallows Eve, which is what Halloween use to be called, was a lot more like the Mexican's Day of the Dead... Not going to attempt the Spanish name as I'll likely butcher the spelling but it translates in English to Day of the Dead. And All Hallows Eve aka Halloween had a very similar concept originally.

    Good point, maybe Day of the Dead would be more accurate.

    What kind of holidays should they celebrate? It's kind of difficult because so much of earth holidays have seasonal baggage which Cybertron wouldn't unless energon is harvested instead of mined. At the very least, I imagine they would celebrate the Cybertronian New Year and independence from the Quintessons in continuities where such things are applicable.

    No, and nope, Primus is the "God" of Transformers/Cybertronians.

    Million years old entities celebrating human religious holiday that is only thousands of years old?

    And the why of it would be?

    Human religions try to explain the universe among other things, with different approaches. Primus does the same, with its particular angle.

    But there's literally nothing a human religion can explain to millions years old spacefaring species with their own omnipotent god-creator. They were around longer than humans are a thing.

    Instead of playing smart, give one example.


    Creation of the universe?

    ALL human religions put the timeframe withing thousands of years.

    TFs are millions of years old.

    Creation of their wold?

    They know it's Primus. They walk his body.

    Afterlife? Souls? They know the Allspark. Again, Primus is a tangible fact for them.

    Workings of the universe? Their science is more advanced that human, they already know better.

    Value of life and forgiveness?

    They already know the concepts. Well, at least Autobots do, not given with Decepticons.

    So?

    There's no argument for it.

    I'm not thinking in conventional religions, there are things that transcend what you said, but this is not like the right place for give you examples, really.
