13 months of 28 days each would be a far better calendar system (+1 day of rest) than our Gregorian piece of shit system of uneven monthly fucksticks

As per title. It's really self-explanatory. If we followed the lunar calendar, all months would correspond to 1 single lunar revolution, and women would conform to a regular date of period, and we could gain a predictive advantage over events and occurences that are currently beyond our control. Order would be restored to the galaxy; the sun, moon and stars would be a cohesive unit and a beautiful yardstick by which our lives would attain greater significance in the cosmic sense, and we would look heavenwards and be blissed out to the divine rhythm.

Corrected Gregorian Calendar month names

Hello everyone.

It always bothered me that SEPTEMber was the ninth month, OCTOber was the tenth month, NOVEMber was the eleventh month and DECEMber was the twelfth month.

So, now I'm writing a fictional world and I want to rename the months so there are no references to Roman gods (i.e. January) or emperors (i. e. July) but still uses the numbered months. So, this time, September will be 7th, October will be 8th, November will be 9th and December will be 10th. A quick search led me to find UNDECIMber and DUODECIMber, which were proposed 13th and 14th leap months, but really refer to month 11 and 12.

Being a total noob at Latin, I don't know how the other months would be called under this system. I have a hunch that UNUMber (1st) would be correct and maybe DUOber (2nd) but names for the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th months are a mystery to me because tres/tria, quattuor, quinque and sex have very different writings than the rest and I don't think just lumping them together with suffix -ber

"As the Seventh month dies" is in xx calendar not gregorian/Julian Calendar. It was never Neville or Harry

I want a story where they all assume that either Neville or Harry is prophesied hero only for it to be someone else.

Like when all hope is fading this person stood up, fought alongside the the two. someone who doesn't have an obligation to do so but they cannot let the kids do everything. Someone inspired by the heroes and said gave Harry and the other the much needed break and assistance. No one knew that that person was destined to do so until the final battle and dealt the kill shot.

Imagine someone inspired by harry. Since prophesies are not meant to be straightforward and usually only makes sense once it has concluded. That it is acknowledged that Harry did stuff not because of the prophesy but by choice. That just because everyone assumes it your duty that doesn't mean it is really upon their shoulders.

E.G. The seventh month in Celtic/Irish calendar is Beltain. The child born as Beltane ends. So it's May 1st since the calendar starts with November. (Because that day is magi

January through June are named after Gods and festivals.

July and August are named after Roman leaders.

September through December are just "7th month" and on. Did they run out of ideas? Did they abandon some names from before the calendar reform? Did they not want to give a God's name to a 'sad' month where the days were getting shorter?

CMV: A Calendar of 13 months of 28 days each would be vastly superior to the Gregorian calendar.

EDIT: /u/cacheflow made a nice point about how a geocentric calendar will be flawed in the long term as we venture into space and beyond, rendering this change pointless eventually. While I still feel my proposal would be superior to what we have today, and still believe it's possible to implement it efficiently, I completely agree that investing the time and energy into changing it is a waste if we're just going to have to change it again.

I'm certainly not the first person to notice this, but I have recently come around to believing that the Gregorian calendar is a grand waste of time. A 13 month calendar with 28 days each would be easier to use, save us time and money in the long run, and should be adopted posthaste.

Flaws with the Gregorian:

  1. Uneven months. The fact that I still have to recite a rhyme in my head or hold my fists out and count on my knuckles to remember which months have 31 days is stupid. This results in complications for accounting.

It is named for Pope Gregory XIII, who introduced it in 1582.

But why did Pope Gregory XIII make October the 10th month on the Gregorian calendar when Octo/Octa translates from Greek into Eight?
