    We tried the new calendar in France, with a base 10 for the number of days. 12 months of 30 days plus four or five days added to the end. With new names for the months and for the years. It worked for 14 years before the switch back to the old tried and true calendar. With great relief.

    However, I am surprised that an American kid would offer to create a 13 months year as the number is supposed to be even more bad luck than in Europe.

    Metrification first, to catch up with the rest of the world. Only then think about ‘improving’ everybodies calendar.

    Seventy-three five-day weeks. Five major segments, each of seventy-three days. Leap years would add an un-numbered leap day in Mid-July, which would always extend a weekend to three days while still maintaining the grueling schedule of the three-day work week.
    Metrification is for people who can’t handle hexadecimal and other complex schemes requiring mental exercise for no other reason than to have mental exercise. Length, volume and weight are the triathlon of mental acuity.

    Nah. 8 thirty-day months, four 31-day months and an “intercalary” day between December and January – and an extra day between June and July in leap years.
    .
    Four sets of thirty-one, thirty and thirty day months.
    .
    January first is always Sunday, and every date in every month comes on the same day of the week every year.
    .
    Here’s the Wikipedia write-up, with illustrations

    Careful you don’t get 13 Friday the 13ths in a year. I don’t worry about it, but in sure would get tired of hearing about it.

    How many of y’all knew that the years 2100, 2200 and 2300 will not be leap years?
