Based on a pure lunar cycle (Created by the brilliant Little Lord Rabbit) – the calendar reflects a year of 13 lunar months – Elder, Elemental and Celestial Gods. Every month has 28 days, a perfect four weeks. Unlike the earth, this system actually balances with the solar calendar as well – due to the Week of the Stag where all of the Celestial Bodies cease to move and the heavens reset themselves.

Usually, the first day of a month, a festival is held for the god for whom the month is named. As well, the first day of the season is celebrated as the Holy Day of its particular Seasonal god. However, the first day of the year is the exception, for it is also the First Day of Spring, the First day of the Month of Bear and the end of the Week of the Stag. The entire week is a celebration of rebirth – the first day being “The Awakening of Bear” and the seventh day the “Holy Day of Spring.”
