New World Calendar Created Just for fun.
The 1st is always on Monday

Since we now have this web site 95% complete, we have had some time for idle thoughts. Since we had such a hard time getting the expiration dates correct, we thought a simpler calendar was needed. Here is the perfect calendar. The first of every month is on Monday and the dates of the month always fall on the same day of the week. Leap year occurs once every five years, in years divisible by five,  by adding one extra week to December. Minor additional corrections are outlined at the bottom of this page. This calendar keeps the start of the earth's orbit around the sun and the perihelion (closest point to the Sun) in the first week of January. This calendar has nothing to do with any religion in the world. We wanted the first day to be on Monday because that is when most payments for rent or purchase of real-estate come due. But any day will do. And as far as we know there is no law that says we must use the present Gregorian Calendar. A new calendar user would simply write 2001 N.C. Of curse we are not responsible for problems and have no liability for using that designation. This calendar will sooner or later be required because of global warming.

For this calendar  January 1, 2001 A.D.  = January 1, 2001 N.C. for  New Calendar or (aka. OSCC's Calendar)
For this calendar  July 4, 1776 A.D.  = July 4, 1776 N.C.

Minor corrections,
Every 40 and 400 years leap year is skipped, But it is used in years divisible by 200.
OR my favorite:
A leap year every five years except every 50 years. This one starts at day 36 however. But it has the same days as the other version shown at the top. In fact , both have about a 90 year period in late 1700's and mid 1900's that old calendar converts to the same date in either one. In the late 1700's, in the first six months on the year it is an exact conversion as far as I have tested it.
Now there are many scenarios that work for these corrections, but they all lack some usability feature. We have a spread sheet with all this and the conversion formula for changing the date from the old calendar to the new one all done If any one wants a copy send me an email and We will email it. It is 130Kb. This will be free unless We get too many requests.

Here are the rules I had for creating this calendar.

New World Calendar

I have found no legal requirement that we must use the present calendar. Therefore I presume everyone is free to make up their own. Below is mine.

As the earth spin slows down days will get longer and the year will get "shorter". Not in it's trip around the sun, but because there are less "days" due to the days getting longer. That is : instead of 365.25 it will be 365 then 364.75 then 364.5 etc.

The present calendar with its months of 28-31 days creates a situation where the first of the month falls randomly on different days of the week. This can be corrected by a few simple rules.

  1. The present sequence of days of the week must be maintained.
  2. The first of every month must fall on the same day of the week. I.e. always on Monday. Note: January 1, 2000 is a Saturday and January 1, 2001 a Monday. I have decided to add two days to December 1999 so that my January 1, 2000 falls on a Monday. Thus the perihelion point when the earth begins it's new journey around the sun occurs at 5:00 AM on Monday the first day of the new year on January 1, 2000 N.C. Note: N.C. replaces A.D. Since A.D. is for those who actually specify the present calendar. Without a specification I don't know whose calendar you are using.
  3. A leap year accounts for the extra 1 1/4 days in a year by adding an extra week at the end of every fifth year except every 40th year. This 40 year exception is not followed once every two hundred years.
  4. My new calendar has 364 days so that it is devisable by 7. This creates a 52 week year. I have chosen the weeks per month as follows: January, April, July, October each have 5 weeks and the others 4 weeks. The leap week will be added to December. Salaried people would now have to be paid for these "fifth" weeks. An extra 4 or 5 weeks per year.
  5. Any other calendars must follow these rules and the additional ones below. It must have a simple, easy to understand, repetitive correction for the 11/4 day. The primary rule used, with its exceptions, must be easily programmable for watches and computers.
  6. Only one leap week per leap year is allowed.
  7. It can have a maximum combination of 5 rules and exceptions. None of which can be a one-time event.
  8. The new calendar must have a normal year of 364 days so that it is devisable by 7. This creates a 52 week year. The leap week correction must be added to last month of the year. It must have a minimum of 8 and maximum of 16 months. The monthly arrangement is immaterial, but possibilities are 5,4,4,5,4,4,5,4,4,5,4,4 or 6,5,5,5,5,6,5,5,5,5 or 13 months of 4 weeks each and a leap month for the correction.
  9. The beginning of the year must have some relation to astronomical fact.
  10. The solution must be based on Science and Mathematics using the solar year of 365.242199074074 days.
  11. It cannot have an accumulated gain of more than the present calendar in 2000 years which is 0.6019 days.
  12. The present calendar has one correction rule with two exceptions. It has an error of <+/- 1.4 days. I know of several variations to the above rules. One is just let the astronomers set the leap year. This would have an error of <+/- 5 days, but is not computer programmable. The others are more complicated and harder to remember than my choice. I made a spreadsheet to do the calculations.
