The FirstWorld calendar began with the creation of the first and second born. The Wise have maintained records since their creation. Each of the races has developed many of their own calendar systems. In the Elannort system, each year is split into four seasons – spring, summer, autumn and winter. Each season is split into three months – early season, season, and late season. The second month of each season has 31 days and the other two have thirty days. The sixteenth day of the second month marks a special event. In spring and autumn, it marks the equinox. In winter and summer, the solstice. At mid-winter, the sun is at its lowest point in the sky and it is the shortest day. At mid-spring, the sun rises exactly in the east, travels through the sky for 12 hours and sets exactly in the west. At mid-summer, the sun is at its highest point in the sky and it is the longest day. At mid-autumn, the equinox is repeated. Each of these days is a festival day – birth (spring); fertility/family (summer); harvest (autumn); renewal (winter). A New Year festival is also celebrated between the end of winter and the beginning of spring. It is a single day, except every four years when an additional day is added.
