**6*6*10** is a perennial solar calendar with:

- 6 months per year
- 6 weeks per month
- 10 days per week

Every month ends with a blank day, with the exception of the last month in non-leap years. Blank days are intercalary days and can be treated as holidays.

## Nice attributes of the 6*6*10 calendar[edit | edit source]

The units are *regular*:

- Every year is the same (except leap years).
- Every month is the same (in leap years).

A regular calendar simplifies scheduling.

Days of month are *decimal* zero-based numbering:

- One's place corresponds to the weekday number.
- Ten's place corresponds to the month's week number.

Thus dates are *easy* to compute and visualize in your head.

The units are *divisible* (ignoring blank days):

- All units are divisible by half – ½ year, ½ month, ½ week.
- All units are divisible a second way – ⅓ year, ⅓ month, ⅕ week.

Divisibility allows flexibility. For example, if weeks (10 days) is too long for a recurring schedule, then use a half weeks (5 days).

Month-week-day *format*:

- Explicitly states the week number and weekday (no need to consult a calendar to look up the weekday).

- MWD consumes only three digits (which is more compact than Gregorian's MMDD four digits).
