Could you please answer this questing on Jewish history:

What would the Karaim do different on the chagim and the Torah readings?


Karaim, as the name of their sect hints (from the word kera, Scripture), follow the literal reading of the Torah, and deny the validity of the rabbinical interpretation. Therefore, they do not permit a light to remain lit on Shabbos, even though it was kindled before Shabbos; they celebrate Shavuos fifty days after the Sunday that falls during Pesach; they continue to fix their calendar according to the New Moon; their Passover Haggadah includes only readings from the Bible narrative… and so on.
