During a Blood Moon,most hostile mobs such as zombies or skeletons will be buffed and mobs that originally spawn under certain conditions such as the phantoms will be able to spawn this night! You cannot sleep, so beware.

Droplets of blood will rain from the sky and from time to time you will hear screams coming from the darkness. When below 8 HP, you will hear your heart thumping ...

Festival Night
Festival nights are unique and special events that have a 10% chance to take place on every 7th night of your world...

Pay attention to the sky during this night...Fireworks will go off and green sparkles will lighten up the dark night...You can even hear the sparkling from time to time...

During this night,crop growth rate is three times as fast and glow squids + axolotls will be able to spawn on the surface of your world!
Mining diamonds will give you twice the amount and surprisingly, evil creatures will not attack you! Iron golems and villagers become friends with monsters this night!

I have a suggestion that I would really like to see added.

Make the lunar events days follow the lunar phases. which would also make it 8 days instead of 7, but it would make it so much easier to make add-on datapacks if it was connected to the lunar phases. and it would also make the count unbreakable as sometimes it becomes out of sync. Here's a quote from the wiki:

Each day that progresses adds 24000 ticks to the time counter. While each day looks the same, the Moon will go through one of its 8 different phases each night. Although there is no explicit command to change the Moon's phase, using /time add 24000 will advance the Moon to its next phase. Furthermore, any of the phases can be accessed with the use of one of the following commands:

/time set night - Full Moon

/time set 38000 - Waning Gibbous

/time set 62000 - Last Quarter

/time set 86000 - Waning Crescent

/time set 110000 - New Moon

/time set 134000 - Waxing Crescent

/time set 158000 - First Quarter

/time set 182000 - Waxing Gibbous

If you mean maxEntityCramming limit, which is 25 i think by default, I will increase it a bit in my fork in the next update

I think an event themed around the Deep Dark would be cool. You could make infected variants of mobs appear, which would spread the sculk upon their death.

Frost Moon (Christmas themed) and Pumpkin Moon (Halloween themed) are nice additions to the datapack! You can check Terraria wiki for more info about these events (Since they originate from Terraria itself).
