    Re: The Christian Calendar

    Only if you interpret it that way. Just interpret the first month as March.

    The Pharisees made the Talmud and the Christians made the Holy BIble. The months in the Holy Bible are just 12 months and we use the Roman names for them now as you see on the New Jerusalem Calendar.

    Originally just first month, second month, third month etc., man societies gave names to the months.

    Canaanite influence on month names:
    Abib, Ethanim, Bul, Zif etc

    Babylonian influence on month names:
    Nisan, Tammuz, Adar etc

    Roman influence on month names:
    March, July, February etc

    We use the Roman influenced names these days. Like the first month is March.

    There are a lot of alternate calendars out there. All of them are too much trouble to implement, for no real benefit.

    In addition, calendars that mess with the 7-day week will be rejected by Christians, Muslims, and Jews.

    Also, calendars that mess with the date of Easter will be rejected by Christians. We've had a policy on the date of Easter since Nicaea.
