The Thousand Kingdoms
The Imperial Calendar
Each year is 384 days long. There are twelve months, each consisting of four weeks. Each week has eight days. Weeks are named just like days and months are. Instead of saying “The second Galenday of Jadztar”, one could say “The Jadztar Sazti Galanday” or more commonly “The ninth of Jadztar”.
The days of the week always fall on the same days of the month.
