Calendar

Time travels on Golarion much as it does here on our own Earth. Sixty seconds form a minute, sixty minutes create an hour, and twenty-four hours make a day. The people of Golarion measure time much like we do as well, with seven days to a week and twelve 30-day months to a year. Years are marked since the founding of the last great empire, that of Aroden, the Last of the First Humans. Although the empire has collapsed, its calendar remains in use to this day.

Days of the week

The days of the week are as follows. Each day has a general purpose that most people in the Inner Sea region follow:
Moonday (Work, religion)
Toilday (Work)
Wealday (Work)
Oathday (Work, pacts signed, oaths sworn)
Fireday (Work)
Starday (Work)
Sunday (Rest, religion)

Months

The months in Golarion correspond to our own, with each new year starting shortly after the solstice. The name of each month is etymologically tied to a specific god: Abadar, Calistria. Pharasma, Gozreh, Desna, Sarenrae, Erastil, Aroden, Rovagug, Lamashtu, Nethys, and Zon-Kuthon. Natives of Golarion see the gods reflected in the changing of the seasons, and their names for the months reflect this. (Gozreh’s month, for instance, is a time of budding and new life, while Zon-Kuthon’s is seen as the death of the old year.) Holidays in a given month are generally tied to their patron deity.

In order, the months are:
Abadius (ah-BAY-dee-us) (January)
Calistril (KAHL-izz-trihl) (February)
Pharast (fah-RAHST) (March)
Gozran (GOHZ-ran) (April)
Desnus (DEZ-nuhs) (May)
Sarenith (sa-REHN-ihth) (June)
Erastus (eh-RAS-tuhs) (July)
Arodus (AIR-oh-duhs) (August)
Rova (ROH-va) (September)
Lamashan (lah-MAHSH-ahn) (October)
Neth (NEHTH) (November)
Kuthona (koo-THOH-nah) (December)
