Enderi were 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.[1]

In the Kings' Reckoning and Stewards' Reckoning, loëndë would be replaced by two (occasionally three) enderi in leap years. In the New Reckoning each year contained three enderi, of which the second was referred to as loëndë.
