Absalom Reckoning

Absalom Reckoning or AR is the most commonly used calendar in Avistan and Garund, and possibly in all of Golarion. In Absalom Reckoning the day of the month is always listed first, followed by the month and the year and generally followed by the letters AR. It takes its beginning from the date of the founding of Absalom, which occurred on 1 Abadius, 1 AR. According to the calendar, each day on Golarion has 24 hours, each week has seven days, and 52 weeks make a year. A year is also divided into twelve months, although once every eight years an extra day is added to make up for the slight variance in the planet’s orbit around the sun. This leap day is generally added to the end of Calistril . The last leap year was 4704 AR, so the next one will be 4712 AR.
