That is the order in which they occur Saturday being the first one in their week.
The Special Days like; Midyears' day, Leap Day etc have no day designations & this is how they keep the other days coming out right! Since nobody has done this for our calendar things fall on different days each year. So that is what you would need to keep in mind when referring to these Shire dates. Hope that made sense. Vanye

Winterfilth*.....Winterfyllep..........First full moon of winter
Blotmath.....Blotmonath..........Month for butchering extra livestock
Foreyule.....Aerra Geola..........Month before winter festival of Geol/ Yule
*Winter + filth, sounds like a messy time of the year, slushy-muddy, as October in England/ Shire can be. But "filth" is fylth in Old english, while the ending fyllep may have nothing to do with dirtiness, but may rather come from "fylled" meaning "fulness," or from "fyllan," to "fill-up," "complete," "satisfy."
