I've been contemplating a new calendar for Deini. I'm thinking about making the new year start on the Winter solstice, but can't decide on what to make year 1. Being a personal language, I think it should coincide roughly with my birth or maybe conception, but should year 1 be the year I was born, the year before, or the year after? I'm thinking the year should be broken into four seasons with the days numbered 1-~91. At some point I'll have to insert a leap day, and I may declare that some sort of special holiday. There is still a seven-day week though I already have new names for each day.
