The year consists of roughly 365.25 days of 24 hours (modern-day reckoning) each, numbered (in the Tar'ran Kingdom) from the year in which the Covenant of Union was created. There are twelve months in each year, plus five days outside of the normal month/week cycle (six on leap years, occuring every year evenly divisible by four, except for those years divisible evenly by 100)

The months are, in order: Januar, Febrik, Mark, Aprill, Mai, Juni, Juli, Agus, Tember, Tober, Novik, Dekar.

Each 30-day month consists of three 10-day weeks, known as First, Second and Third Week.

The days of the week are Air, Dragon, Earth, Cash, Void, Wyvern, Fire, Cups, Water, Swords. The first day of each month is thus Air Day; the last, Swords Day. Calendrical days begin just after midnight by convention.

Usually, dates are represented in this order:

**858 C.U. Mark 2nd Cashday**

Typically, ordinary townfolk will take two days off per week, and work one or two half days also. For countryfolk, the time of year and season will matter more than what day of the week it happens to be.

The five days dedicated to the 'week' of "Year's End" -- outside normal reckoning and expectations -- are: Lust Day, Drunk Day, Quiet Day, Family Day, & Gods' Day. Every four years a sixth day is added at year-end, “Extra Day”.

Here is a link to a standard Haerthian calendar.

Days are themselves divided into

**day**- =
*XX hour-like periods*= I can't say ... - = 24 hours = 1440 minutes = 86,400 seconds
*blah, sort of an hour*- = 20
*durrands*= 50*two-minute-like units*= 500*zahtahn*= 6000*arczahtahn* - = 100 minutes = 6000 seconds
*durrand*- = 2.5
*two-minute-like units*= 25*zahtahn*= 300*arczahtahn* - = 5 minutes = 300 seconds
*two-minute-like-units*- = 10
*zahtahn*= 120*arczahtahn* - = 2 minutes = 120 seconds
*zahtahn*- = 12
*arczahtahn* - = 12 seconds
