August 24 is one of 3 days the mundus cerialis was opened and offerings were made to Ceres as goddess of fertility and guardian of seed corn and also as her status as warden of the afterlife.

At the opening of the mundus, the spirits of the dead were temporarily granted leave from the underworld and allowed to roam the land of the living.
