Filianic calendar is used by the followers of Filianism, a new religious movement calling itself a 'feminine religion'.
The Week[edit | edit source]
Filianic calendar uses the seven-day week just as most other calendars on the Earth. However, the days have been renamed to honor the seven main goddesses of the faith:
- Sunday becomes Rayadi and is dedicated to Sai Raya, the goddess of the Sun
- Monday becomes Candredi and is dedicated to Sai Candre, the goddess of the Moon and imagination
- Tuesday becomes Vikhedi and is dedicated to Sai Vikhë, the goddess of discord and combat
- Wednesday becomes Matidi and is dedicated to Sai Mati, the goddess of the intellect and communication
- Thursday becomes Thamedi and is dedicated to Sai Thamë, the goddess of harmony and music
- Friday becomes Sucridi and is dedicated to Sai Sushuri, the goddess of love and beauty
- Saturday becomes Rhavedi and is dedicated to Sai Rhavë, the goddess of discipline
The Months[edit | edit source]
There are 13 months in the Filianic calendar:
Every month lasts 4 weeks. This gives 364 days; the last day (or two days in leap years) of the year is called Hiatus and belongs to no month.
The Year[edit | edit source]
The Filianic year begins on the spring solstice, called Eastre by the followers of the religion. Every year is dedicated to the goddess of the day it begins. The Filianic era started on 1320 BC; the current year 3335 is a year of Sai Rhavë and started on 21 March 2015.
The goddesses correspond to dominical letters of the Gregorian calendar (or in case of leap years, to the second letter), e.g the year of Sai Raya is always C or DC; the year of Sai Candre is always B or CB. They also correspond to the Doomsday algorithm, since the spring solstice always falls on the year's doomsday. For example 3314 (Gregorian 1994), 3325 (Gregorian 2005) and 3336 (Gregorian 2016) share doomsday on Monday and are all years of Sai Candre in the Filianic calendar.
The years of Sai Rhavë are considered the least lucky.
