The Absalom Reconing
In our interpretation the calendar year starts at the winter solstice which is always a Moonday. This day is then followed by the three winter months Kuthoa, Abadius and Calistril.Then comes the vernal equinox, followed by the three months of spring Pharast, Gozran and Desnus. Then comes the summer solstice and the summer months Sarenith, Erastus and Arodus. And finaly comes the autumnal equinox and the months of fall, Rova Lamashan and Neth. The solstices and equinoxes are not placed in any month, but rather between months. According to the Absalom calendar, however, the year begins on the first day of Abadius.
