[comments] Menu 1. Months of the year 2. Days in the month 3. Synchronization with the solar year Quaxin Xun and many other cultures of southern Soltenna and northern Akulanen use a lunisolar calendar, which originated in pre-migration insular Mañi culture, around 1000 BCE.

[top]Months of the year

The months of the year of the Mañi calendar are as follows:

These months are named after constellations of the Ngerupic zodiac.

[top]Days in the month

Historically, the Mañi calendar assigns the number of days in the month on the fly, so that each month would begin on the full moon. As a result, almost every month had 29 or 30 days.

In modern days, astronomers convene every 8 years to set the month lengths for the following 8 years. This practice was put into place Canoe 1, 2388 (a leap year; corresponds to April 3, 1825 in the Georgian calendar).

[top]Synchronization with the solar year

The Mañi year starts the first time the full moon is in Hàkmąŗał (canoe), which usually occurs around the vernal equinox. The wet season in southern Soltenna and northern Akulanen starts in the month of Chiixichko (shark). In order to keep the lunar cycle in sync with the solar year, 1 thirteenth intercalary month, Ŋųnįŋ (the foreigner), is inserted every three years after Łàakani (barge). The intercalary month has 35 days in the modern calendar. Historically, the number of days in the intercalary month would be variable, based on the number of days required to resynchronize the calendar with both the synodic month and the sidereal year.
