I've created my own religion, known as Octavianism. It's still a little rough around the edges but heres what i have so far:

Octavianism
Goddesses and Gods believed in: Octavia
Main Focus:  Worshipping Octavia for bringing balance to the Earth by locking away the dark spirit away
Praying habits:  prayers are said 3 times a day, at 9am, 12 pm, and 9pm. Standard phrase said during these prayers is: Achmiu hammira sana. Prayers generally last one to two minutes
Forbidden foods: Pork and cow, and lamb.
Holidays:
Shashibana: A day that celebreates the earths creation. A great feast takes place and no prayers are said on this day. After the feast there is a small ceremony about Octavia and her deeds. DATE: June 1st  
Racquashola: Octdavia's birthday. (similar to Christmas) Parents give their children a small sum of money and 2-3 presents.  Relatives also visit and give small presents to children. Date: July 18th
Atimacca: Mourning day of Octavia's death. Prayers are said and typically black clothing is worn.

Months:
Roman Cal. Month Oct. Calendar Month Month Begins Month End
January Mava January 1st January 26th
February Calca January 30th February 21st
March Kikara February 25th March 10th
April Bryl March 15th April 9th
May             Larel April 10th
June         Guera
July        Zorra
August Jenji
September Menji
October Harvu
November Camna
December Gatha

Other: In Octavianism, you can only believe in Octavia and the Five Divine Elements, and only them. Octavia, like God in Christianity, is the Creator. She watches over you in Moonclan, and you are Her children. She was born in the Age Before Time, and She guided the Elemental Guardians and with Her help, the Guardians defeated the Evil One in the Age of The New Dawn.
The Five Divine Elements control your path and your fate. If you are wicked during your life, you will be given a second chance by being reborn after you die.

if you're intersted in becoming Octavian then please, speak up! note me or comment here. like i said, it's rough, but i'm working on it

no not exactly. see, the concept of a new religion came to me some time ago, (back wehn i was probably like, 13) and i didn't think about it too much. but as i grew older i realized that creating a new religion could be pretty cool. So, the concepts of octavianism began to develope, slowly at first, but then as i began adding to it, it slowly began to take shape into what i had envisioned into my head.

and honestly i do not think i would've come up with this if I didn't have ADHD, lol. :)

That's a little... odd, don't you think? Especially considering that the idol does not exist?
