Calendar

The Enilderan calendar is presented below. This calendar is the most widely used and accepted form of measurement for years and is currently used by Enilder, Remmus, and Woodwind exclusively. Neerg and Desicc both use the calendar here to great extent, though they also use more traditional calendars for religious or cultural reasons.

The calendar consists of nine months, each split into four weeks of ten days each.

Months

  1. Spriggen
    • The beginning of spring and the dawning of new years are celebrated within this month.
  2. Amil
    • The true beginning of the new farming season for summer-harvested crops (the first of the two main harvests annually)
  3. Heizen
    • The end of spring and the beginning of summer.
  4. Crescen
    • Heightening warmth and the beginning of summer harvests.
  5. Sunstay
    • The first of Sunstay is traditionally considered the longest day of the year, though the end of the month marks the end of summer.
  6. Sewin
    • The last of summer crops have been harvested and thus begins the planting of late autumn and winter crops.
  7. Kul
    • This month in Enilder is dedicated to the god of law, Lewkul.
  8. Hearthlight
    • The daylight shortens greatly in this month before reaching the shortest day of the year at month end. Generally a celebration of family takes place this month.
  9. Finir
    • Harvesting of winter crops and year-end celebrations fill this month as days continue to lengthen and make way for spring.

Weeks

While weeks do have names, they have fallen out of wide-spread use and are only used in the most archaic of situations. Generally, one refers to a day number and month to refer to a date rather than using month name, week name and day number.

  1. Dawn
  2. Rise
  3. Set
  4. Dusk

Days

  1. Aquisday
    • Shortened from " Aquinas Day," named for the god of time. The first day of the week, though not traditionally a work day.
  2. Jorday
    • The beginning of the financial week and named for Jorham, god of commerce.
  3. Moraday
    • Shortened from " Moradin‘s Day," widely believed to be named in honor of Moradin’s victory over Gorthmor after a three-day long combat.
  4. Mazersday
    • Named for Mazerak, god of knowledge, and often used as a day to teach others.
  5. Sunday
    • The middle of the work week for most farmers and laborers and the day to work later to make sure all the week’s business will be completed. Named so because workers stay out in the sun to work longer.
  6. Amilday
    • Named in honor of Amilar, god of farming and livestock. Most farmers bring their wares to town on Amilday.
  7. Kingday
    • Tax collection day, named in honor of the kings and kingdoms to which the taxes are paid. The most hated day of the week for many.
  8. Friday
    • Shortened from “friar’s day” and used as a religious day after the day’s work is done. Temples are particularly crowded this day in most churches.
  9. Ardallday
    • The ninth day of the week is so named for Ardall, god of humor. With the work week over, many use this day to relax and enjoy themselves. Theaters regularly have comic acts and discounted rates for Ardallday.
  10. Relday
    • A second day of relaxation for most, named in honor of Relep, the god of change, in recognition of new days, weeks, months and years yet to come.
