An Idosan Year

An Idosan year consists of 12 months, each made up of three tendays. Holidays fall on the same date each year. The holidays listed below fall on the 1st of each of their respected months. The only holiday that does not adhere to this rule is the holiday of Shieldmeet, which is celebrated once every four years as a leap day. It is celebrated on the day immediately following Flamerule and does not actually count as a date. For example, while Shieldmeet of 2371 AR will fall on the 1st of Elesias, Shieldmeet will be written as Shieldmeet 2371 AR.
