Time and Seasons

There are 26 hours, or chimes, in the Dárdünah day, which begins when Edü rises at False Dawn. Edü sets at the 15th chime. The larger Lokáynü rises and sets at the second and sixteenth chimes. Prayers are held at False Dawn (the first chime), Midday (the sixth chime), False Dusk (the fifteenth chime), and Midnight (the twenty-first chime).

The Jade Calendar of Magár was created after the Wars of Twilight, and is used in most nations today. In its original form, it is circular so that the end of the year connects seamlessly with the beginning. The sixteen months follow the cycle of the largest moon Máynatah, which is 32 days, and each month is divided into four 8-day weeks. The last day of each week is a holy day, when rituals such as weddings, funerals, and naming ceremonies are performed.
