The Žakatatadþe people use a lunar calendar established around the beginning of the classical era; namely the blood-red full moon of the Gregorian year 1994 BC Feb 22. The format of dates is always Year-Era-Month-Day. Years are numbered by a nonary cycle consisting of three kings with three phases each. The era is decimal numbered by year according to the reign of kings. The Month is marked by the names of twelve different named moons. Months are 30 days, and an intercalary month of 54 days is inserted at the end of every ninth year to align the start of the next year with the full moon. Days are measured from sunset to the next sunset, and are marked by a vigenary cycle of 5 guardians and 4 animals. There are four hours/watches in a day: sunset-sunrise, early morning, late morning, and afternoon-sunset.
