unzitbi (calendar)

astronomical solar year, 365 and one quarter of the day, is divided into nine months (1.-4.,6.-9.), each with 36 days, one (5.) with 37 and one (10.) with 41 days. once in four years, it must be added one day to the fifth month to compensate the remaining quarter of the day. it is an old tradition to divide each year to so-called dinases - 'sacred half-years', aroddinasbi an or raka (ADR), which begins 1xVP, and aroddinasbi an ar pon (ADP), 1xVA. (Raka and Pon were the First People of Arodgerd):
