theAbysmal Calendar ~ Implementation

When does theAbysmal begin?

theAbysmal Calendar begins with the New Year’s day on December 21st 2012. The date is hardly coincidental, for two reasons. That particular date has garnered much attention as the end date to the Mayan long count calendar‘s measure of 13 baktun. It also falls on the Northern Winter Solstice. It is also followed by Saturday December 22nd, which is also a Saturday on theAbysmal Calendar. As such, the weekdays align for an entire year, which makes the transition the least disruptive calendar reform in history.

For those who miss this golden opportunity, fret not. The weekdays will align again in 2018-2019.
