796. Alt Calendar    User: horology guy   Post date: 2021/05/31(Mon) 22:26:45             
My alternative calendar is similar to Asimov's "World Season Calendar" in that it divides the year 4 ways, by solstices and equinoxes, and has static calendars (months always begin on the same day, special date/s are added without a day of the week)

Like the Soviet system, it uses 6 day workweeks; this allows for a natural 4 day weekdays + 2 day weekend division of labor.

1 season is a holiday, followed by 3 months of 5 weeks of 6 days each, followed by another holiday. (1+(3*5*6)*4) = 364; the year is began with a "year day" between spring and summer, while leap years also see a "leap day" added between fall and winter.

June 19 - Year Day
June 20 - Summer Day
June 21 - Summer 1
September 18 - Summer 90
September 19 - Fall Day
September 20 - Fall 1
December 18 - Fall 90
December 19 - Winter Day
December 20 - Winter 1
March 19 - Winter 90
March 20 - Spring Day
March 21 - Spring 1
June 18 - Spring 90
