    Nine really interesting things about calendars

  • Here are nine things you never knew about your calendar.
    1. : The calendar used in most countries now is the Gregorian Calendar and wasintroduced by Pope Gregory XIII in 1582. Its predecessor was the Julian Calendar which had been introduced centuries earlier by Julius Caesar.
    2. : In ancient times, a month was calculated roughly by the length of time it takes the Moon to orbit Earth and begin a new phase. This occurs about every 29 and a half days. Although the length of a month now varies, the word month comes from the word "moon" (a "month")
    3. : Although the Gregorian Calendar is the most commonly used there are 6 other regular calendars: the Chinese calendar, the Hebrew Calendar, the Islamic Calendar, the Persian Calendar, the Ethiopian Calendar and the Balinese Pawukon.
    4. : The word calendar comes from the Latin word Kalendae which meant the first day of the month.
    5. : The first eight months are named after various gods, goddesses, festivals, and rulers.
    6. : Although September, October, November and December are the 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th months of the year, the name September comes from the word "septem" which means 7, October comes from "octo" meaning 8, November from "novem" meaning 9 and December from "decem" meaning 10. This is because in the ancient Roman calendar, there were 10 months in the year, so the names of the months reflected when they occurred in the year.
    7. : The names for the days of the week come from the Saxons. The Saxons named the days of the week after their gods. Sunday was “Sun’s Day.” Monday was named for the moon. Tuesday was “Tiw’s Day,” and Wednesday was “Woden’s Day.” Thursday was named for the god, Thor, while Friday was “Frigg’s Day.” Saturday was named for the god, Saturn.
    8. : Sunday first became a day of rest in the year 321. Roman emperor Constantine chose Sunday to please both Christians (the day of the resurrection) and pagans (many of whom worshipped one of the sun-gods of the empire).
    9. : In the year 534, Dionysius Exiguus (also known as Dennis the Little), created the system, still used today, of counting the years starting with the birth of Christ. Unfortunately, he made some errors in his calculation, so the birth of Jesus probably took place around 6 B.C. (Herod the Great, who is mentioned in the stories of Jesus' birth, died in 4 B.C.)
