We are here, gathered together my friends, not to celebrate only the new elvish year (XV 1) which starts at sunset this March, 29th, 2017. No. We’re here because a NEW CENTURY starts! Not a human century though which are shorter, but an elvish one which lasts 144 years!
Last Yén started on March, 29th, 1873 and so you got an idea how far back that was, let’s check some interesting events that happened in the beginning of the XIV Yén:
05/01/1873 = 1st US postal card issued (and now we’re on the age of the internet for some decades where postal cards are pre-historic)
07/21/1873 = Jesse James gang’s 1st train robbery (and now we see those old Wild West stories on movies and not on the news as real life daily routine events)
09/06/1873 = Regular cable car service begins in San Francisco (and the revolution on transportation didn’t stop there, did it? After all, we went to the moon not on cable cars)
Which changes will there be in 2160? Will there be peace after all? Is death be long gone? New technologies which we don’t even dream right now? Cure for all diseases? All these may be far-fetched, but so was the internet, the movies and the rockets in the year 1873, right?
When is the sunset where you live?
Also, we are proud to announce a NEW version of the Elvish Calendar designed by Erutulco Eruntano, our Quenya Master here, which gets rid of some bugs happening with the days of the week and so on. Now you got a better and enhanced version to calculate your days like an elven boss!
You can change the languages now to: English, Spanish, German, Russian, Quenya and Quenya (Tengwar) beta version.
