Messiah’s Calendar is a calendar proposal that has 20 months of 18 days each grouped into 4 seasons, where the last month of a season is longer: It usually has 19 days, but the last month of winter has 20 days in common and 21 days in leap years. The seasons are roughly aligned to the solstices and equinoxes, with the year (and spring) beginning on the Northern vernal equinox (i.e. around Gregorian 20 March).
Week[edit | edit source]
The calendar uses a 5-day week called penteh which is not aligned with months or seasons, i.e. the calendar is not perennial. The days of the week are called
Every Freeday and the whole pentehs containing a solstice or equinox are considered public holidays.
Time[edit | edit source]
The day is divided into 20 hours, i.e. 1 Messiah hour is 12 minutes longer than a normal hour. Each Messiah hour contains 100 Messiah minutes of 100 Messiah seconds each, 125 of these seconds equal 54 normal seconds, 2.3(148):1, so a Messiah minute is 43.2 SI seconds or 0.72 minutes long.
