Story

Note: Although the solstices are switched (summer is winter and winter is summer), the calendars are effectively synchronous because on Gie, the summer solstice is considered the start of the new year.

3 months of 30 days (first-summer, mid-summer, last-summer) (the central sun-days of mid-summer are a midseason festival)\\ 1 fall equinox
3 months of 30 days (first-autumn, mid-autumn, last-autumn (the central sun-days of mid-autumn are a midseason festival)\\ 2 - winter solstice (expands to 3 every ~4 years, except for the 128th year)\\ 3 months of 30 days (first winter, mid-winter, last-winter) (the central sun-days of mid-winter are a midseason festival)
1 spring equinox
3 months of 30 days (first-spring, mid-spring, last-spring) (the central sun-days of mid-spring are a midseason festival)

the solstices and equinoxes are epagomenal days, and also festival-days


A month is two fifteen day cycles (pakshas, or more formally dekapenthÝmeros) comprised of the following:

sun-day, mercury-day, venus-day, moon-day, mars-day, jupiter-day, saturn-day, uranus-day
saturn-day, jupiter-day, mars-day, moon-day, venus-day, mercury-day, sun-day
Sun-days are days of rest (as they happen in a pair, or surrounding the intercalary days), as is uranus-day. Uranus day is also seen as a holy-day, set aside for Tavara. in the middle of seasons, Sun-days are festivals.

Moon-day, as it is in the middle of both halves, is seen as a market-day.
