The intelligent denizens of Azeroth have come to almost universally accept a single system of measuring time, known simply as the Azerothic Calendar. The central point used to measure years is the Shattering event, the beginning of which marks 0 ASh (After Shattering). Events preceding this point are fall into the BSh (Before Shattering) period. Each year is divided into twelve months, which are each divided into either twenty-eight, thirty, or thirty-one days; days are uniform in length and last twenty four hours.
A typical date is written in a month day, year-notation; for example, if the day in question is the fifth day of the first month of the eighteenth year post-Shattering, it would be written as II Frost 5th, 18 ASh.
Some of Azeroth's less civilized inhabitants often use a simpler system based off of the Azerothic Calendar. Some equalize the length of each month to a specific, easy-to-remember number of days, while others simply exclude the "leap year" principle.
