Syra's current calendar was created following the Elf Wars. It consists of twelve months, each named for a great hero who fell during the war. Each week has eight days, named for eight of the gods. The months are thirty days long, and sync up with Omiel's lunar cycle. The full moon is on the first of each month, and the new moon is on the sixteenth.
