A calendar is a system of organizing days for social, religious, commercial or administrative purposes. This is done by giving names to periods of time, typically days, weeks, months, and years. In the Land of the Living there's a yearly rotation of public events such as holidays and celebrations in different kingdoms due to cultural, historic, legislative and religious reasons.
Below is a yearly rotation list of famous events which were celebrated in the Third Age in chronological order. Many of them were kingdom-specific events, so one kingdom's celebration very rarely carried over to another kingdom's calendar with the exception of larger celebrations such as Midsummer and Midwinter.
