a The 365-day year consists of 18 named months of 20 numbered days each and 1 "unlucky" period of 5 days. A Haab date is analogous to specifying a date and month in the Gregorian calendar;for example, the day 14 Yaxkin is followed by 15 Yaxkin. The 20th day of the month is designated "end" or "seating" (sometimes incorrectly translated as "zero"). Thus, 19 Yaxkin is followed by "end" Yaxkin (or "seating" Mol), which in turn is followed by 1 Mol.
