Calendar makers were probably the first people to come up with the concept of planned obsolescence.
I’m not getting a lot of support for my proposal to change the calendar. Each month has 28 days. Each month starts on Sunday the first and ends on Saturday the 28th. Every month is identical.
Thirteen such months make up 364 days. The extra day needed is called New Year Day and it is part of the new year, but is not part of a month or week. It simply gets slipped in between Friday the 28th of the old year and Sunday the 1st of the New Year. This assures a three-day weekend without shortening the work week on either side.
Every 4 years, Leap Day will be added at the end of the year immediately before New Year Day.
Calendar makers hate the idea. Also, it is not popular with triskaidekaphobiacs since there are 13 Friday the 13ths.
