Year 10~IV Month 1

19 January 2010

108 weeks down, 152 to go until theAbysmal Kalindar’s launch on 21~12~2012.

Note: Day 17, Month 1 equivalent to February 5th is the midway day in Quarter 0 of the year. This means that 45 days have passed since the beginning of the Quarter (and the Year), and there are yet 45 days to go until the end of the Quarter. Each midway day of each Quarter bears the number 5 this year.

theAbysmal Kalindar will associate the holiday imagery associated with Groundhog’s Day to this midway day, as it stands midway between the Solstice and the Equinox, and the shadow image, along with the duration of Winter, are appropriate.

Happy Julian New Year

14 January 2010

celebrating the New Year Old School.

The Julian Calendar, the predecessor of the Gregorian Calendar now used globally, observes a leap year every 4 years without exception. As the Gregorian Calendar does not observe leap years in years divisible by 100, but does observe them in years divisible by 400, the two calendars have fallen out of synch.

As such, today, January 14th 2010 on the Gregorian Calendar is January 1st on the Julian.

Happy New Year.
