Boomtime, the 7 day of Chaos in the YOLD 3170 (4)

The Discordian Calendar

Many dates on this site are given according to the unholy Discordian calendar. If you don't know what "Discordian" means, you should read the Principia Discordia. You should probably read it anyway, if you haven't done so already.

The calendar is divided into five (of course!) seasons:

Name Patron apostle
Chaos Hung Mung
Discord Dr. Van Van Mojo
Confusion Sri Syadasti
Bureaucracy Zarathud
The Aftermath The Elder Malaclypse

The days of the week are named from the (guess what!) five Basic Elements: sweet, boom, pungent, prickle and orange:

  1. Sweetmorn
  2. Boomtime
  3. Pungenday
  4. Prickle-Prickle
  5. Setting Orange

1) Mungday 1) Chaoflux
