The elven calendar divides the year into eight parts, collectively called savaeds; most of them share the name with the holiday that starts them.
The elven New Year is celebrated on Saovine.
There are four holidays whose dates are connected with the activities of the Sun.
Four other holidays take place during a new moon.
Conversion Tables Edit
- These conversion tables are based on the assumption that a year in the Witcher world is 365/366 days long and that the astrological and mythological phenomena happen at about the same time of the year as in the northern hemisphere of our own world.
- As is common with calendars, astrological and mythological holidays have been moved to a fixed date.
