    were i potentate every month would have 30 days; then there would be a 5 or 6 days of airing of grievances, feats of strength, and dance’n.

    The thing I find the most surprising is that the calendar for December is actually accurate to the day. Just the November one which is not.

      And the small November inset calendar is correct as well. It’s just the large trailing numbers leading into December that are off.

    Hey, my birthday is November 31st. Do you know how rarely I get to celebrate it? So stop complaining about this.

  6. This is not new.  USPS, UPS, FedEx… all of them regularly invent days: Nov. 31, Oftember 18, Fringday.  This helps them get the packages delivered on time and is considered to be one of the most important innovations in the parcel delivery service since the invention of the electronic signature pad that documents the delivery in no verifiable way.

    This is Old Style; they changed the calendar in the 19A0s.
