Calendar is a system of organizing days for social, religious, commercial, or administrative purposes. This is done by giving names to periods of time, typically days, weeks, months, and years. A date is the designation of a single, specific day within such a system. Periods in a calendar (such as years and months) are usually, though not necessarily, synchronized with the cycle of the sun or the moon. Many civilizations and societies have devised a calendar, usually derived from other calendars on which they model their systems, suited to their particular needs. A calendar is also a physical device (often paper) or computer program. — Wikipedia (List of Calendars)

Reform?


Calendar reform roperly calendrical reform, is any significant revision of a calendar system. The term sometimes is used instead for a proposal to switch to a different calendar. Most calendars have several rules which could be altered by reform:

Whether and how days are grouped into subdivisions such as months and weeks, and days outside those subdivisions, if any.
Which years are leap years and common years and how they differ.
Numbering of years, selection of the epoch, and the issue of year zero.
Start of the year (such as southern solstice, January 1, March 1, northward equinox, Easter).
If a week is retained, the start, length, and names of its days.
Start of the day (midnight, sunrise, noon, or sunset).
If months are retained, number, lengths, and names of months,
Special days and periods (such as leap day or intercalary day).
Alignment with social cycles.
Alignment with astronomical cycles.
Alignment with biological cycles.
Literal notation of dates. — Wikipedia
