Yestarë

Yestarë, meaning "First-day", was the name used in the Elves' calendars, and those derived from them, for the first day of the year. The actual date of yestarë varied from calendar to calendar; in the Shire Calendar, it was 6 April.[1] It was the first day of spring and the renewal of nature.
