One day in real life time (RLT) corresponds to one month or one third of a season in game time.

For reference, 2009 April 23 is Late Spring of Year 2. (Seasons are divided into "Early", "Mid" and "Late".)

The below events are approximate, because many of the exact dates are fuzzy in the memory of Shintolin elders.
