"A person’s age was counted in the number of winters [they] had lived. This may indicate that “New Year” was on 14 April, i.e. the first day of summer."
People still do the winters thing where I'm from.
"The Vikings did not use exact years to date events, a so-called absolute chronology. Instead, they used a relative chronology with reference to the number of years after important events."
Aren't all calendars like that? Sure, the Gregorian one hasn't reset in a while, but still.
@alva That sounds really cool for some reason. :3
If you're born in the middle of winter, does the one you were born in count?
@IceWolf I don't know. :)
Maybe you can use fractional winters? :D
@alva I remember someone proposed a calendar based on earth geological times or something, now i gotta find what that was exactly
@alva the last important event was at 1970-01-01T00:00:00Z
