I will not bore you with the details of the astronomy of these three phenomena. These changes have been too much written. I'm just wondering if it is possible to create a calendar that takes into account only these three phenomena and allows us to use the same calendar every year. Every year, looks the same, January 1 always falls on Sunday. The only question is how to solve the problem of the remaining day in an ordinary year and the remaining two days in a leap year. Such a problem I do not have to solve, which is already done.
But the outbreak of the Second World War, the idea totally into decline.
- The quarters are mutually equal, every 91 days, 13 weeks and 3 months.
- The four quarters have the same structure with the same sequence of 31, 30 and 30 days.
- Each month has 26 days and always four or five Sundays.
- Every year begins on Sunday, January 1st, the first day is always Monday, January 2nd.
- Each quarter starts on a Sunday and ends on a Saturday.
- The perpetual calendar is made throughout the year to make the 364ste day end on Saturday December 30th. Then there is an extra day which is equivalent to December 31st. This is Day, a holiday for everyone.
- Leap day is similarly added to the month of June. This is also a holiday for the whole world.
There are two "extrakalendriale" Days World Day and Leap. On December 31 we celebrate the Earth a round again made the sun. Very neutral. Every four years there is a leap year. Then we celebrate Leap and we do it fine in summer. The United Nations can these holidays also make theme days during which attention can be paid to issues of global importance such as peace, Food, Clean Water, the position of children, the environment etc. Another major advantage is that Christmas Day, December 25, always falls on a Monday.
However, the very fact that the Gregorian calendar has a strong western and religious accent, in a globalized world would be an argument for the introduction of a world calendar.
In 1920 'ruled' the Western world directly and indirectly, nearly almost 50% of the inhabitants of the Earth, in 2010 this will be only 11.5%. Introduction of a neutral calendar where the business will have much benefit in Global Village is therefore not a bad idea at all. Moreover the World Calelendar Association still exists and seeks to introduce this calendar in 2012.
