Isidoro Calendar

The Devi Calendar

In the nation of Isidoro, the way of keeping track of dates is with the Devi Calendar. The Devi Calendar is named after the Goddess Devishtari and is separated into four Seasons, each named after a secondary God or Goddess.

Patron Months and Celebrations

In the Devi Calendar, along with months being named after some Patron Gods and Goddesses, there is also a month that follows their naming convention as well. During this month, there are widespread celebrations that seek to honor the Gods and look for their blessings.

Depending on which season it is, it will be done a specific way and for a specific reason. For example: In the season of Terra, in the month of Terraire, is when the celebration of Devterra would take place. It follows the same category for the others: Basta and Bastaidor for Devbasta; Vitaea and Vitaeal for Devita; and lastly Eira and Eiraose for Deveira.

Hey! The "I like your art-style"-guy is here again. ^^ I mean, honestly, it is just awesome. Keep on. ^^

A question to your article: You said that there are celebrations for each deity. Are all of these happy celebrations? Or are there devotional or sad celebrations as well, for example when everything is dark and grey in winter, or when stocks are coming to an end?

Question no. 2: Why do all months in one season have the same post-fix? Do these postfixes have meaning, or are they just uniform within one season to ease pronouncement?

Most are respectful celebrations! All may not be happy, but at the very least they're respectful to the god the event is about.   The months all have the same post-fix since it was something I saw with olden day calendars and I thought it was neat : D
