Maschenen Calendar[]

The Maschenen Calendar is the solar calendar traditionally used in Maschenya, and the Lanecyu Dominion. Traditionally associated with ritual processes, the calendar is used in all facets of life. The Calendar begins each year on the Spring Equinox, and consists of 12 30-day months, with an additional several day long festival to make up the difference.
