There are 366 days in the Velitar Calender. It is divided into 12 months. Each month has 4 weeks of 7 days each (give or take). Most of the names on the calendar, be they for months or days, come from the Old Faith (Druidism) with only a few exceptions.

Mitran Holy Days:
March 5, 6 and 7
These are some of the highest holy days in the faith. It is believed that during these three days Mitra created man and shaped the world into what it is today.
On this day it is believed that Mitra saved the Ancients from the destruction of Paradise.
Probably the most important holy day. It was on this day that Mitra defeated the Greatest Demon.
On this day Mitra made man self aware and gave him free will.
Druidic Holy Days:
Druidic Planting Feast
Summer Solstice. The longest day.
October 30, 31 and November 1
Celebration of the harvest
Winter Solstice. The shortest day.
The Dark Faith
Few know the reasons behind these dates and in fact their signifigance may be only superstition. There may be, and probably are, other holy days but knowledge of them is restricted.
April 30 and May 1
Believed to be the Dark Faiths highest holy day.
October 31 and November 1
Another very important day. Legend says that evil spirits are released on the world from midnight Oct. 31st till the last minute of Nov. 1st. The fact that the Druids have a holy day at the same time may or may not be significant. It has certainly caused much suspicion over the years.
