Fairday is the fifth day of the week between Homeday and Launderday. While today Fairday is the day fairs are held, the name comes from an ancient human word meaning divine.
Argosian ValuesMarketday is one of the weekdays that reflect the values of the Argosian Empire. While standardization was the primary goal of Viktus' Calendar, there was a clear attempt to guide the masses to what he considered a wholesome life. The early pamphlets and annuals disemminated by the Argosian government make no attempt to hide this. In the Citizens Guide to Household Management, an annual made in collaboration with the Guild of Domestics, Fairday is intended to be a day for the community. Citizens are encouraged to spend the day outside in public. Many public events are scheduled on Fairdays, leaving plenty options for what to attend.
Numbered Days of the WeekIn the Dwarven languages the weeks are numbered and named thusly. Historically the Dwarven week started on the day now called Sunday, but Storan has changed the start of their week to Marketday to better align with the Imperial calendar. The Storan name for the weekday, Quinta, means fifth. In Sirenic, which still begins the week on a Sunday, the day is called έκτη (c.:Ékti), which comes from έκτος (c.: Éktos, "sixth").
Days named after Lunar PhasesIn Low Elven the Imperialized weekdays are named after the phases of the moon. Fairday is known as Dégidis or Waneday, representing the Waning Moon.
