Calendar and Dates

The Morrowan calendar marks seven days to each week, 28 days to each month (of four weeks), 13 months to each year, and thus 364 days altogether comprising one full year with four seasons at 13 weeks apiece. Although it is still not wholly accurate, requiring an inter-calculated day every three years at Winter Solstice (Longest Night), it is far more accurate than the previous Caspian dating system.

Composing Dates: The accepted formal arrangement of calendar dates and how they are properly composed begins by stating the name of the week, followed by the day, then month and year. This formal reckoning begins numbering the days of each week within any given month from one to seven and starts again with one for the ensuing week. For example, the 11th day of the month Ashtoven is written or spoken as “Malleus 4th, Ashtoven 602 AR” rather than “Ashtoven 11th.” However, in the past generation or two, informal writings and day-to-day discourse have leaned toward the latter, informal version. Because of this, both methods are acceptable, although the majority of printed matter still applies dates in the formal style.
