The calender system used in Welancia is based on the founding of the kingdom. With year 0 being the year the kingdom was founded. The years are in the YF format. The people use a 12 month calender system, with years being 354 days long normally. Every two years, an extra month is inserted after the fourth month, as a month of celebration. Deciding on when this extra month is added is one of the many jobs of the king, as the mortal and spiritual leader of his people.
