Elven Calendar Edit
The Elven Calendar, also known as the Otermai Calendar, after the elvish queen who set it in place over 3200 years ago, begins its year with the first full moon of Rama. The year has 360 days, neatly divided into 12 months for each of Rama's orbits around the world. Each week has 6 days and there are 5 weeks in a month.
Days of the week Edit
Each day of the week is named for the primary elvish gods:
- 1st day: Uktai, named for Ukko
- 2nd day: Rauntai, named for Rauni
- 3rd day: Kuutai, named for Kuu
- 4th day: Ahtai, named for Ahto
- 5th day: Kyllitai, named for Kyllikki
- 6th day: Lautai, named for Laufi
Uktai and Rauntai are typical days where elves refrain from much work, and most non-essential businesses are closed. Lautai is a frequent holiday as well, with at least one major holiday falling on the sixth day of the week every month.
