Completely arbitrary divisions of the day into manageable chunks, most likely. In my con-culture, in the early days of Lunar Independance, there was a short-lived calendar which divided up the Lunar "day" (period from sunrise to sunrise) into exactly 30 "days", each 30-day unit being called a month, and 12 making a year. So, essentially, analagous to a lunar calendar. However, that didn't last long and they returned to going by Earth's calendar after a few years.
