I have wondered about an eight day added to the week for a long time. My thought was to add a Newday named as is after Sunday; being it is a new day. For me by representing nothing it is seemingly the the most important thing in the world. So by creating a new day after Sunday which Sunday being the last day of the week we have an end yet to start again. Thank You have a great day. https://www.facebook.com/david.g.delancey 1:19 P.M.

The Maya calendar is actually a system of distinct calendars and almanacs used by the Maya civilization of pre-Columbian Mesoamerica, and by some modern Maya communities in highland Guatemala.
These calendars could be synchronised and interlocked in complex ways, their combinations giving rise to further, more extensive cycles.
The essentials of the Maya calendric system are based upon a system which had been in common use throughout the region, dating back to at least the 6th century BCE. It shares many aspects with calendars employed by other earlier Mesoamerican civilizations, such as the Zapotec and Olmec, and contemporary or later ones such as the Mixtec and Aztec calendars. Although the Mesoamerican calendar did not originate with the Maya, their subsequent extensions and refinements to it were the most sophisticated. Along with those of the Aztecs, the Maya calendars are the best-documented and most completely understood.
