TIL There's only 97 leap years every 400 years, even though there's a leap year every 4 years. This is due to a change that took place in 1582 with the introduction of the Gregorian Calendar and the erasure of the Julian Calendar. theconversation.com/how-a…
England Julian calendar, questions regarding the change of the start of the year
I don't know where else to make this question.
England has changed which day marks the start of the year. Since England moved over to the Gregorian calendar, it has always been 1 January marking the start. However, between 1155 and 1751, England had 25 March as the start of the year. This mean that 24 March 1748 was followed by 25 March 1749. As 1752 began with 1 January instead, that meant that year 1751 only lasted from 25 March to 31 December.
But England has changed the start of the year multiple times. But there's not much details regarding of how these date changes occured. England used 1 January as the start for 1087 to 1155. How did they move from 1 January to 25 March? The issue is if they simply prolonged the new years day to 25 March, which results in 1 January – 24 March occuring twice for the same year. Alternatively having the year only last from 1 January – 24 March would offset the year for England compared to the rest of the world.

The secret message said there was something happening on May 19th, but what if it was in old Julian russian calendar
Since the people are Russian Nationalists I think (I get really confused with the lore) and they are friends with AQ I think, maybe they also use the Traditional Calendar of Russia used until the first half of the 1900's. That would mean it would be June 1st on the Gregorian calendar. Not sure if anyone else noticed this if so, can you link it. Thanks
TIL In 45 BC the New Year was moved from March 1 to January 1. But it was abolished making December 25 as the beginning of the New Year. Then it was changed to March 25.

Are there any countries/cultures that don't use the Gregorian or Julian calendars?
From what I know, both Gregorian and Julian calendars' set point of "year zero" are based on Christ's presence (BC/AD or BCE/CE). Even though the BCE/CE system is supposed to be secular, it has numerical values identical to the BC/AD system. So do some people have a different "year zero," or use a different calendar altogether?
Converting Julian Time into Calendar Time
I'm currently working on a project for work and my data logger exported time in Julian Day Format. Given the format it exported as, I am struggling to find resources that would help me convert to Calendar Time. Basically, the format I am looking for is MM:DD:HH:SS:YYYY or maybe even just MM:DD:HH:YYYY.
I have attached a screenshot of the exported format.
Thank you so much in advance.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year for all of you who celebrate it according to old Julian calendar.
Merry Christmas dear users and a Happy New Year! 🎉
The Julian calendar is based on day of the year
Were there any adverse effects of the drifting Julian calendar?
I read that the Julian calendar adds eleven minutes every year because it includes too many leap days. In the seventeenth century, for instance, Europeans who had not yet adopted the Gregorian calendar would have been (I think) twelve days ahead of the "proper" calendar date. Did this drift have any effect on everyday life? Eg farmers who had to plant crops at a certain time planting them later and later in the season based on the drifting calendar date, and perhaps ending up with poorer yields? Did people simply account for this by some intuitive knowledge of the seasons, or maybe the discrepancy was not large enough to make a noticeable difference?
TIL Prince Philip was born in a time and place where the Julian calendar was still in use, rather than the Gregorian calendar, giving him two "different" birthdays en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pri…
It's true according to old Julian calendar.
Our calendar system deserves to be called the Julian Calendar, not the Gregorian calendar.
Julius Caesar MADE this calendar, like ground up. Beforehand, the calendar had to be manually fixed (literally adding and subtracting days every year). It was 10 days shorter, and after he was doing caesar shit and didnt fix the calendar for a while, it got to be MONTHS behind. Over less than a decade. The number of days in the months are still the same. The months themselves are the same. The leap years are effectively the same.
The ONLY thing pope gregory did was say "3 times every 400 years its not gonna be a leap year".
Pope Gregory made one tiny fuckin adjustment, but now all of a sudden it's HIS calendar? Give Jules the respect he deserves.
That's like calling all of star wars "A Rian Johnson saga" its fucking absurd
How did people count years prior to the advent of the Julian calendar?
We have established that Alexander died in 323BC, but what year was that to contemporary Greeks? What about 44BC, or 33AD? Did they even bother counting years?
TIL The Romans had a 13th "leap month" known as Mercedonius which functioned similarly to the modern leap day. It was eliminated when Julius Caesar replaced the Roman Calendar with the Julian calendar. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mer…

Question about the Julian calendar
If it was implemented in 45BC and the Gregorian calendar in 1582AD, because the Julian one is off by 1 day every 128 years, wouldn't that make it off by a little more than 12 days by the 16th century?
Yet on Wikipedia and other sources I keep reading that by then it was off by about 10 days.
Am I missing something?
TIL The Russians showed up 12 days late to the 1908 Olympics in London because they were using the Julian calendar instead of the Gregorian calendar. si.com/extra-mustard/2013…
In the middle ages, the order of the cosmos was considered divinely perfect, yet clearly folks noticed imperfections as they revised calendars between Julian and Gregorian. What were the theological justifications for these imperfections and how were they argued as divinely ordered despite them?

"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.
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

[2019-03-13] Challenge #376 [Intermediate] The Revised Julian Calendar
The Revised Julian Calendar is a calendar system very similar to the familiar Gregorian Calendar, but slightly more accurate in terms of average year length. The Revised Julian Calendar has a leap day on Feb 29th of leap years as follows:
- Years that are evenly divisible by 4 are leap years.
- Exception: Years that are evenly divisible by 100 are not leap years.
- Exception to the exception: Years for which the remainder when divided by 900 is either 200 or 600 are leap years.
For instance, 2000 is an exception to the exception: the remainder when dividing 2000 by 900 is 200. So 2000 is a leap year in the Revised Julian Calendar.
Given two positive year numbers (with the second one greater than or equal to the first), find out how many leap days (Feb 29ths) appear between Jan 1 of the first year, and Jan 1 of the second year in the Revised Julian Calendar. This is equivalent to asking ho

The Julian Calendar doesn’t make sense
If you really think about it the calendar we all know and love doesn’t really make a lot of sense. We are taught how it works before most of us can even read. We are supposed to just accept the fact that some months have 31 days and some have 30 except for February. Why is this? Why not just say that February is 24 days long and every other month is 31. Just so long that it fits between 365 days. Why not say that November is now two different months at 15 days a piece? The February thing has always bugged me. Why February? If it all counts towards days of the year, what prompted scholars to say “this is definitively how it works”?
Just something I’ve been thinking about for the last half hour. (Yes. The time is a Julian concept as well).

We all know that "Year 0" in the Gregorian calendar is the (supposed) birth year of Jesus. But what about the previous calendars ?
Did they even refer to years on an absolute scale?
In which case, what is the meaning of their "Year 0"?
If they didn't, how can we know which absolute year they are referring to when reading old texts?
TIL that the Roman calendar originally had 10 months - the last month of the year, December, literally means 10th month.

Alternatively, happy March 14th in the Flavian calendar.
So...2018. The year everyone has been talking about recently. Well...ever since people got bored of recapping 2017 back in January last year.
Disclaimer: It’s currently 3:16 in the morning for me (Finished at 3:59. I should sleep, but I feel too restless), as my dad spent 2 hours and 45 minutes talking about things like: why GMT is UTC, wood, pi, dogs, speed of sound vs speed of light, a cycle of socio-economic systems leading to eachother, ect. So I will probably sound insane and spend too long trying to say simple things...like I am doing right now.
Anyway...2018 has been an interesting year. Good things happened, like Kirby Star Allies being released on my birthday, Super Smash Bros Ultimate being released on my friend’s birthday and me finding out about this subreddit.
But at the same time, a multiple week-long snowstorm started on my birthday, ruining my plans to go somewhere nice. I was in hospital multiple times betwee
