There are three weeks per month. Months with 31 days get one filler day at the end of the month. This is usually a religious holiday, meant for meditation, festivals, or frivolity. Every four years, the first month (Devotion) gets a 31st day as a Leap Year, and that Masetide is always celebrated with a feast. Masetide, while not associated with any god directly, gets its name from the local clay, Masminsa, which was used to fashion the ten God Jars.

Holidays

  • Ambition 21st- New Year's Day
  • Temperance 21st-25th- Summer Festival
  • Suffering 21st- Ascension Day (Phaerith)
  • Spirituality 30th (Qovide)- Autumn celebration on a Qovide to ward off Qos' evil taint.
  • Peace 21st-31st- Winter Festival
  • Birth Anniversaries- Birthdays. Always celebrated with friends and loved ones. Small, personal gifts are encouraged. The ritual, however, goes beyond friends and loved ones, as everyone who has knowledge of the person's birth anniversary will kiss the celebrant (usually on the forehead, temple, or, more rarely, on the cheek), and speak the refrain, “Blessed is the day you were born, and blessed are we to be your brothers and sisters.” However, it has been shortened over the years to just, “Blessed is the day you were born.”

Days of Rest

  • Masetide- Off day for meditation. Guards can choose who rotates these days to keep the country safe.
  • Kareide and Soteide- Days of Peace

Every four years, Devotion has a 31st day. This is their version of leap year and is usually a day of rest or frivolity.

I even made a handy calendar! Because, quite frankly, I love my procrastination. No, this is not pretty, but it is functional and it was fun as crap. Have a look.
