The human settlements nearly universally observe a solar calendar. Maroon's year is 340 days long, requiring an extra day every three years to keep the solar calendar aligned. The citizens of Vindulan, within and without the Cincture, divide the year into 34 tendays, noting the beginning of the year on the winter solstice (Winterswatch) and its midpoint at the summer solstice (Firemorn). Three tendays make a lamma, excepting the first tenday, which is a Mannaday Tenday (New Years' festival week) following the Winterswatch.

Every 51 years (17 leaps) a Grand Leap festival (Mannaday Whennahey) is held.

Maroon's three small moons have taken on mythic names. The Witch's Eye, named after the Witch Queen, is tinged green in color; the Beggar's Eye (also called the Thief's Eye) is golden white; and the Serpent's Eye glitters baleful red.
