Extrapolation[edit | edit source]

All of the dates in this timeline are extrapolated from Brigitte's calendar. The first date which is crossed off is October 2, a full moon, also the date when Ginger was bitten by the Beast of Bailey Downs. The red circled date, October 30, is the full moon.

The dates were estimated based on time of day and transitions from scene to scene (for example, from day to night). For events where the time of day was not shown, the most probable estimate is given.

Notes[edit | edit source]

The month of October is referenced from Brigitte's marking in the calendar. The year 1999 was determined from Trina's missing poster, where she was stated missing on 10/24/1999.


Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The calendar exists in the Ginger Snaps universe, but not in real-life. In 1999, the only months where there were two full moons were during January and March on January 1 and 31 and March 2 and 31. The full moon in October was on October 24.
  • Some scenes seem they take place immediately the next day, but logically they should appear several days later.
