Was glad to learn about the World Calendar, and hope that it is soon adopted by the various countries.

I like it, but the International Fixed Calendar is more interesting

The World Calendar may still be the best calendar reform option. It seems to draw the least amount of objections that may allow for eventual adoption. Yet, a leap-week calendar may also be worth more consideration. Soon we'll need to have a serious discussion about bringing this issue back to the U.S. Congress (and other international governmental bodies) for debate. Perhaps after a, hopefully, resolved Middle East/Iraq situation, and peaceful relations elsewhere this can occur. The next (I think) date after 2006 that the World Calendar could be easily implemented would be 2017; a nice "dozen years" from 2005. Please contact me via my email address for further discussion on this issue and the next steps to be taken. -Bob Gardin, Cleveland, Ohio, USA

In 1995 I invented Rainbow Perpetual Calendar in Russia and Ukraine, simple device checked by computer. I studied the World Calendar and have found that there is a common computer calculation base for the Gregorian, the Julian and the World Calendars. Visit me on with the password Rainbow or 2391314 (

One thing your association appears to not deal with is year. When is the UN going to develop a nonreligious year system?

Stumbled upon The World Calendar through a Uni assignment, math question. I then chose to do calendars in may SSE inquiry report and found the information collected fascinating. The World Calendar is not publicly known; it should be out there and yes promoting so that we can modernize the calendar to suit all better.

Nice what you intend! Question: where does this calendar have the 365th day of the year (the blank day)? Is that before the 1st of Jan.? Or is it in the middle of the year? Please let me know! Second question: wasn't this idea earlier proposed by the Frenchman Armelin? (Why is his name not mentioned as the real inventor?) Third question: Please add "U.S.A." to your address, because you don't exist (I suppose) only for your own country. Why is your site only in English? The world is bigger than the U.S.A. ...! I hope to hear soon from you! Guus J. den Besten Noorderstraat 4 NL - 9635 TG Noordbroek Netherlands E-mail:

Dear Molly and friends: Thanks for keeping the World Calendar vision alive! I have been a persistent supporter ever since I first read about it in a kid's science book 35 years ago - doing my best to publicize it through magazine articles and website links, etc. A couple of years ago, I was in contact with Norman who were so kind to send me plenty of material. He didn't say it straight out, but I clearly sensed the need for a new commitment for this initiative. It's a pity that causes such as Calendar reform get so low priority in the current, quite turbulent world of ours. Especially as it has two noble purposes - making our daily lives easier and as a manifestation of world peace & unity. There must be something that could be done to revive and expand the interest in the World Calendar beyond it's current limited number of supporters. Perhaps starting among the kids and youths which will take over this planet after us? As always, I'll be happy to give my support to IWCA and engage in any other way I possibly can. Hans L.D.G.

Thanks for putting the Guestbook back up! I am a proponent of calendar. I support both the efforts for the World Calendar and the International Fixed Calendar. I suggest that proponents of both calendars unite in selecting a common day for the Year Day and common day for the Leap Day. If that is done, then departments and individuals in the same organization and households can view the calendar year in both 12 month and 13 month formats, without conflicts over what days the Year Day and Leap Day (World Days) fall on it. If the calendar reformers can unite on at least those two matters, calendar reform can be much more effectively promoted. Observing the Year Day on New Year's Day and the Leap Day on the last day of the Leap Year is one way to do this. This would be a change for both the World Calendar and the International Fixed Calendar, but neither calendar would be compromised as a result of the change. Further, both calendars would be much more effectively promoted by both camps speaking in the same voice in this matter.

Sou editor do site cultural Almanaque Pridie Kalendas; entre outras divulgações sobre os calendários mundiais, divulgo o Calendário Permanente Panorâmico, pois somos detentores de uma patente de Utilidade.

It would be a big advantage for the whole world, to simply the current gregorian calendar especially for industries, banking treatment. The problem is, no one can imagine how easy a lot of things would be if we had already the simplified world calendar. The current one, introduced in 1582 had also a very long time until the last country (china)implemented it in 1949, 367 years later!!! I hope it will be sooner and quicker until the new world Calendar wins recognition in our world. What can I do to promote the idea?

I am one the proponent for the reform of the present Gregorian calendar. A calendar for the whole world (for all humans of all nations and faith directions). I employ me also with chronology and on my homepage ( the most diverse calendar systems (also the world calendar) explained. For some days "calendar reform suggestion" is on the homepage in the forum the project. In this project the most diverse suggestions are to be discussed. The idea is to be developed it from all discussion contributions sometime once a new calendar reform suggestion and/or to be improved an existing suggestion. I am convinced of which more fueher or later a new calendar for the whole world is introduced. By the way on your homepage ( is an error: The reference for this guest book must (at present: are not called as follows there: Yours sincerely, Merry Christmas and a happy new year 2004 Jens Schneider The German original text: Ich bin einer der Befürworter für die Reform des gegenwärtigen Gregorianischen Kalenders.

We have moved the World Calendar site. Here are the entries from the former World Calendar site (tnx, Wayne)

Does anyone know about any WORLD CALENDAR newsletters? A mailing list? Someway to keep up to date on World Calendar issues? Help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Is Today Easter Sunday in the World Calendar?

I understand the need to standardize the whole world into 1-timezone-1-calendar-1-nation-1-religion etc.
but aren't we forgetting that we are loosing variety, differences between cultures believes and interests?

I recommend the book "Pip Pip" as a vital reading on the subject of our NUMBered time/calendaric system. Also, if you're a creative who has an interesting thoughts on time, contact me.

I strongly agree with the adaptation to the World Calendar. I would also like to see the year changed from 2001 to start from whenever the world did. I might not be exact, but then how accurate do we really know the birth of Jesus!

I met an autistic man was I was a little kid. He told me the day that I was born on (Thursday) after I told him the date. It was a skill of his. He also had an uncanny recollection of baseball games but I don't remember the particulars. It was a long time ago. Anyway, how much easier his life will be!

One issue often neglected or poorly addressed by calendar reformers is when should festivals fixed in the old calendar be celebrated in the new calendar? SAME DAY or SAME DATE? For the World Calendar, this does not matter for the Months of September to February inclusive. For other months a SAME DATE festival may be up to 2 days later or occur on one of the few missing dates. SAME DAY festivals would for these months require new dates to memorise. Cheers, Karl

The main objection to the World calendar is that it does not preserve the traditional uninterrupted week, which is important to religious groups. With leap-week calendars (such as the Civil Bonavian, look it up) one gets all the advantages you list for the World Calendar, plus the advantage that all months start on the same weekday, and preserving the traditional week. IMHO such a calendar is the only one which may eventually be accepted; it's already heralded by the wide acceptance of ISO week numbering.

Molly, Here is how to get this calendar moving: a)obtain control Microsoft. b) Install the world calendar on the operating system and tell anyone who objects to take a hike. That will do it. So who is this great grandma of yours, and how did you find her? Dave
