Each month consists of four weeks of seven days: Vendarl, Malleus, Donard, Gorim. That makes each of the 13 months 28 days long.

The months names, in accepted order, are: Glaceus, Casteus, Trineus, Tempen (Vendarl 7 begins Spring), Cinten, Rowen, Solesh (Malleus 7 beings Summer), Octesh, Katesh, Goloven (Donard 7 begins Fall), Doloven, Khadoven, Ashtoven (Gorim 7 begins Winter).

The Longest Night is a festival that occurs every three years at the end of Ashtoven, before Glaceus. It is an unnumbered day; consider it a leap year day to keep astronomy and calendars in sync. It is filled with festivities and revelry. In some places, the partying lasts up to a few days (although TLN itself is only one day).
