Calendar

The Terrisian calendar has become the most widespread and recognized in the world. It is composed of 12 months, each with 30 days with a 5 (or 6) day holiday to celebrate the passing year.

Days
There are 7 days per week:

Sunday
Moonday
Firesday
Watersday
Treesday
Goldday
Earthsday

Months
The months are named after the aspects of the gods:
Month of the Sun
Month of the Spear
Month of the Ballast
Month of the Hammer
Month of the Dragon
Month of the Tomb
Month of the Coin
Month of the Chain
Month of the Axe
Month of the Chalice
Month of the Leaf
Month of the Sea
The Passing (end of year holiday)

Reading the date properly would use the full name of the month. For example the 5th day of the year would be called “The 5th of the month of the Sun”, though it is more commonly shortened to “5th of the Sun”.

Seasons
The year begins in early Summer, with the Month of the Sun.
Fall begins during the Month of the Hammer until the middle of the Month of the Tomb.
Winter runs from the Month of the Tomb and continues through the Month of the Blade.
Spring begins early in the Month of the Chalice and runs until the winds of the Month of the Sea call in the year end.

Major Holidays
Holy Moonday – Traditionally each month is attributed to a different god of the pantheon, and the first Moonday of each month was reserved for worship of that god. In modern times, the first Moonday of each month is now treated as a kind of general holy day, families are expected to visit their temple services and spend the day in reverence. Some countries observe this on the first Sunday rather than Monday.

The Passing – A 5 day long festival of the end the old year and winter, and the beginning of a spring and a new year. Different lands have different celebrations. In Terris, the days are usually taken as rest, to gather family and enjoy. In Narhim, it is often 5 days of fasting and religious prayer. In both Guild and Appen, great festivals are held, casks of wine and beer cracked and few are left with memories of the time.

Thanks Day – The date varies with the country, but each has a harvest day. This day has a dual purpose, to remember the fall of the the titans and the rise of the gods, giving thanks for being created. The day also helps farmers to set a schedule for the fall harvest, and is usually accompanied by large feasts and festivals.
