The calendar of Ga’leah is divided up into twelve months. This calendar is a lunar with every month beginning and ending with a full moon. This makes each month either 29 or 30 days long. The calendar of Ga’leah begins in the month of Chwefror, the equivalent of February which is also the beginning of the Spring months.
The names and characteristics of the months are as follows:
There are four seasons in Ga'leah: Gwanwyn= Spring, Haf= Summer, Fomhar= Fall, and Gaeaf= Winter. The year is divided into three months for each season.
Gwanwyn or spring includes the months of Chwefror (February), Mawrth (March), and Ebrill (April). Haf belongs to the months of Mai (May), Mehefin (June), and Gorffennaf (July). The season of Fomhar includes Awst (August), Medi (September), and Hydref (October). Lastly the months of Tachwedd (November), Rhagyfr (December), and Ionwar (January).
The four main kingdoms of Ga’leah correspond to one of these four seasons. Xehacora is gwanwyn (spring), Calladahn is the haf (summer), Solhara the Fomhar (fall), and Dokrayth the gaeaf (winter).

Recorded history and the timeline starts at AF when the first fae were created.
