Canaanite calendar

As I mentioned earlier this year that SVR might profit from a more religious diversity, members from all religions (modern and ancient), so I decided to start a thread for the Canaanite pagan calendar started with the month of Iba' altu. If anyone know where I can find a complete calendar online, that would be helpfull. The source for these listings come from a yahoo! group called Canaanite Paganism- Natib Qadish discussion group. It has a calendar that posts reminders to the group about certain events that will occur.

Normally I would started to post entries on the Canaanite calendar, but since the information comes from a website and I didn't get permission from the author to post the information here, I will just post the link to the Canaanite calendar page on her website.

It is a very interesting website with Canaanite myths, rituals and information on the Gods and their religion.
