Time in the Forgotten Realms is very similar to time as we know it. The FR year consists of 365 days divided into 12 months each having exactly 30 days. The extra 5 days fall between certain months as special days, having different meanings in various parts of the realms. The months are seperated into 3 ten day cycles(weeks) called Newmoon, Midmonth, and Oldmoon. Throughout the Realms weeks are known as eves, tendays, weeks, domen, hyrar, or rides depending on the region. There are no day names like Monday or Friday, days are referred to as "the fifth day of midmonth" or the third day of oldmoon." The days are 24 hour cycles with each hour being 60 minutes, and each minute being 10 segments known as clicks (a segment being 6 seconds).
