Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Thinking about calendar design, part of Designing a Calendar.
When we think about a calendar, perhaps the first thing that comes to mind…is a wall calendar, organized around a…theme with a separate picture for each month.…Or perhaps we think of our online calendar.…Or perhaps a compact calendar with a whole year laid out on a single page.…But as well as there being different designs…of calendars, there are also different types of calendars.…The most internationally accepted and…widely used is the Gregorian calendar.…Prior to this, and widespread usage until 1582, was the Julian calendar.…
Both have the same months and month lengths, but add leap years differently.…Consequently the Julian is currently 13 days behind the Gregorian calendar.…For instance the first of January in the Julian…calendar is the 14th of January in the Gregorian.…In the Chinese calendar, each month follows one cycle of the moon.…It is used for marking holidays such as the Chinese new year, and in astrology for…instance to help choose the most auspicious date…for a wedding, or the opening of a building.…
