Saternalia is the Roman festival of Saturn (Cronus).
It was first a one day holiday, but was so loved it became a week long. They gave gifts, partied (lots of food, music and alcohol) And for this one time a year slaves were not to serve, everyone was "equal" during Saturnalia. Some "masters" would even serve their own slaves on this holiday.
