The Glanadian CalendarEdit
Currently, everyone in Glanodel, members of every race, adheres to the same calendar. Simply referred to as the Glanadian Calendar, it has been implimented by all human states, all elven settlements, and all dwarven kingdoms, and has managed to cross into Sinaba, and other surrounding areas. It is the first solar based calendar every made and was created by a mathematician shortly after the birth of Insolity, the dominant human religion. It is organized into millenia, these thousand year spans are called an "era", and been recorded all the way back to the beginning of recorded history. Current eras are referred to as just that or the New Age. All previous eras are simply referred to based on where they fall chronologically (e.g. 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc.). We are in the Fourteenth Era., thus there are thirteen preceeding this one in known history. Prior to the beginning of known history, marked on the calendar by the beginning of the First Era, is known as Legendary Age, or to some non-religious philosophers the Prehistoric Age.
Additionally, each year is divided into 12 months just like in our world, each month corresponding with a month in our time: Inceptum (Jan), Secundus (Feb), Novus (Mar), Vere (Apr), Florentem (May), Calor (June), Medio (July), Frigus (Aug), Autumn (Sept), Cadent (Oct), Nix (Nov), Finem (Dec).
And within each month there are always 3 weeks, each with 10 days: Primum (The First Day), Magus (Day of the Mage), Armum (Day of Armor), Tueri (Day of the Protector), Castitus (Day of Innocence), Guadium (Day of Joy),Amare (Day of Love), Pacem (Day of Peace), Certamen (Day of Conflict), Imus (The Last Day)
