This question popped up in my head recently, after reading some fanfics and just generally after watching some episodes. How exactly does time work in Equestria? Do they measure it in seconds, minutes, hours, days, months and years like we do? Or something different? And what does their calender look like? Are the months the same length as ours, with the same names? Or something different? And the years, they can't really follow the gregorian calendar, based on BC/AD, because of course there was no Jesus Christ (that we know of) in Equestria, so what would their years be called, if they weren't just numbers? I've seen some very interesting ways people have used dates in fanfic, usually with the year something to do with an 'Era', like 'Year 85 of the Celestial Era' or something like that. Would that be close to what they would use? It's probably looking too hard into this particular element of the show, but it's got me stumped.
