The Xaronese Imperial Calendar was the official calendar system used throughout the Holy Xaronese Empire. Created during the reign of Straxus the Great, the Xaronese Imperial Calendar was not put into effect until after Emperor Straxus' death on 13 Scorpion, 33 XE. The calendar was based on Xaron's 435 day year, 432 of those days were divided into 12 equal months with the last 3 days as special intercalary days which didn't belong to any month. Due to the calendar's natural limitations, other planets in the Empire used their own calendars for day-to-day business but were forced to work around the imperial calendar when Empire-wide matters were involved.
The imperial calendar year began around the time of the spring equinox in the Xaronese northern hemisphere and had 12 months of 36 days each. The months were named after the animals of the Xaronese zodiac.
At the end of the year were three intercalary days that didn't belong to any month. These intercalary days were named after traditional Xaronese virtues. Every six years, a leap day was added at the end of the year.
- Piety (added every six years)
Days of the week
The Xaronese month was divided into four equal weeks of nine days each. Each day was named after one of the traditional Xaronese elements.
