The ‘middle-days’ of the Elvish year

The three 'middle-days' unique to the Elvish calendars such as the Reckoning of Rivendell; modern 5, 6 and 7 October. Every twelfth year, these Enderi were increased in number from three to six. Enderi were also used in the calendars of the Dúnedain, though using a different system, whereby two Enderi (rather than the Elves' three) were used at midsummer every fourth year.
