Did the Mayans account for leap year when creating their calender?

all advanced civilizations knew that the earth takes 365¼ days to orbit the sun, the idea of collecting four of those quarters and adding them on as an extra day every four years wasn't instigated as a rule until 45 bc, but the extra ¼ day each year was known by anyone who had the intelligence to create an accurate calendar that predicted equinoxes and solstices (days with equal amounts of night and day and longest and shortest days) for any distance into the future, if they didn't their caledar would be off by one day every four years, which it wasn't.. i will edit my post to expand on the comment below, yes, it is true their caledar did simply count days, however they did predict things like equinoxes so they would have to had known exactly how long it took for the earth to orbit the sun....

If christians keep claiming the world will end in 2012?

• 2012 • The 2012 end of the world scenario is a purely Secular and Pagan hoax. No responsible Jewish, Christian, or Muslim leader supports any of the "prophecies". One of several Mayan calendars is the Long Count calendar, which is reset to day 0 every 1,872,000 days or about 5125 years. The next reset date, by some calculations, is December 21, 2012. This is not a prediction of the end of the world. Here is what a Mayan elder says on the subject: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/6300744/2012-is-not-the-end-of-the-world-Mayan-elder-insists.html These predictions are scare tactics, conspiracy theories, and chances to make money from books and movies. Ever since the Y2K and 6/6/6 (June 6, 2006) End of the World scenarios did not pan out, the scare mongers, conspiracy theorists, book sellers, and television executives have been touting the 2012 End of the World scenario. When 2012 does not happen either, I am sure they will think of something else. Here is also what NASA thinks about the 2012 End of the World scenario: http://pwg.gsfc.nasa.gov/stargaze/StarFAQ18.htm#q306 If you want a bit more information on the 2012 hoax, try: http://www.2012hoax.org • The End of the World • "But of that day or hour, no one knows, neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Be watchful! Be alert! You do not know when the time will come." (Mark 13:32-33) Jesus told us in no uncertain terms that we were not to know when the end of the world would come but that we were always to be ready. The early Christian Church thought that Jesus was going to return at any moment. Only after a couple of centuries did the Church realize that it may be 2,000 or 4,000 or 8,000 years before Jesus returns. The Catholic Church wisely follows Jesus' advice and teaches that each of us should live as if we will meet our maker in the next ten minutes and that we need to work to make the world a better place for our 100 X great-grandchildren. Do not worry about the end of the world. Trust God to make sure everything happens to plan. Just be ready to meet God at any time.

How come Fat Tuesday can be at the beginning of March one year & 2 years later its in the begining of February?

Because Mardi Gras is related to Ash Wednesday and Ash Wednesday is related to Easter. Easter is calculated to follow Passover which is based on the lunar calendar. In 2012, Easter will be on Sunday, April 8. Catholics and most Protestants use the new Gregorian calendar decreed by Pope Gregory XIII in 1582 to calculate the date of Easter. For more information, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gregorian_calendar http://aa.usno.navy.mil/faq/docs/easter.php The time of Easter is based on the cycles of the moon, the equinox, and seasons and things in nature. In simple (?) terms Easter occurs on the first Sunday following the first full moon that occurs on or after the day of the vernal equinox (the first day of spring). In 2012, the vernal equinox will be on Tuesday, March 20. The first full moon after that will be Friday, April 6. Thus, Easter will be on Sunday, April 8. The earliest Easter can be is March 22 as it was last in 1818 and will be next in 2285. The latest Easter can be is April 25 as it was last in 1943 and will be next in 2038. With love in Christ.

Do you believe the world will end in late December of the year 2012 the end of the Myan calendar?

I think so, the Myan's were EXTREMELY intellligent people... Our calander year is based on their mathmatics. Many of the things we use everyday, (that deal with math) are because of them. 2012 is only 3 years away.

Do you think 2011 is going by slow? Also think 2012 is going to be a slow year? What is your outlook for 2013?

Going by one second at a time. In 2013, hoping to survive to 2014. Buying a calendar at start of 2013. Presidential inauguration in January 2013.

What will happen to the Mayan calender after 2012?

The Mayan calendar doesn't end in 2012. 12/21/ is the date of the next cycle (called a bak'tun), not the end of the calendar. Its amazing how little people actually know about things these days - and most people won't bother doing any research first. We don't use the Mayan calendar anyway, so whether it ends in 2012 or not is irrelevant - there is no reason for modern society to start all over at year 1.

Where in JHB can you find a rugby calendar for 2013?

No clue I'm afraid! Rugby calendars are pretty hard to come across in comparison to other sports :-( If you look online you'll definitely be able to find some though!

Trying to find a writable 2013 calendar?

What do you think life will be like in 2013?

polluted, materialistic, artificial, superficial etc so pretty much the same as it is now but 4 times worse and no that doesn't mean anything to me, should it?

What is your belief on the so-called doomsday of 2012?

Nothing will happen. The whole thing is an invention by a bunch of frauds and crackpots trying to get you to buy worthless books and videos. None of it has any basis in real science. The people promoting this have no knowledge of science. They just like to pretend to be knowledgeable in order to impress the gullible. Don't be one of the gullible. There is no 'ancient prediction' by the Mayans or anyone else. These were all invented in the last 20 years. There is no 'mystery planet' about to pass by. Why don't the fraudsters tell us its current location in the sky, so we can all look at it? You decide. There will be no rare alignment, either planetary or galactic. When was the last alignment that caused us any problems anyway? There will be no pole shift. A magnetic pole shift is not imminent and probably tens of thousands of years away. A sudden rotational pole shift is a physical impossibility. The next solar maximum is expected in mid 2013, not 2012 and is expected to be less intense than the last maximum in 2001. Other predictions such as the photon belt and Terence McKenna's Timewave Zero are just too silly to bother with.

Should Libs mark January 2013 on their calendar and go into hybernation until then?

No then we'd miss seeing the republicans get their *ss kicked by the president again. ____________________________ It's not difficult to see why we are in such dire straits as a nation. We have people like this really ignorant poster voting idiots into office and then defending them at all costs. Libs are running us all into the ground and are....quite frankly....dumber than a box of rocks.

Why in the world do people think the planet will end in 2012?

Because they are being constantly bombarded with it by the Hysteria Channel and by the 2012 hoaxers. The claimed 2012 doomsday is a hoax. Everything the scam artists are saying about 2012 is utterly false. The Mayan calendar doesn't end, it just recycles. The Maya didn't predict anything for 2012. They didn’t make prophecies and the end of one cycle and start of another was an event to celebrate. The people talking about all the signs of the end times are happening now don’t realize that they have been happening throughout history. The History Channel doomsday schlockumentary is all lies, half truths, and wild speculation. There were no ancient prophecies concerning 2012. Nostradamus never mentioned it. No one predicted it before the hoaxers started claiming it. This was after their 2003 doomsday failed to occur on schedule and they needed to keep selling their books and assorted doomsday garbage. None of it is said or supported by scientists. All the claimed astronomical events are either impossible or have no effect on us. The Solar maximum is now expected to occur in May 2013 and to be less energetic than average. It could interfere with electronics and communications. We aren't going to have any alignments aside from the apparent alignment that occurs every year at the December solstice. Geomagnetic reversal (polar reversal) takes hundreds to thousands of years to occur. We wouldn’t even feel it happening. Nibiru doesn't exist. It came from Z. Sitchen's misinterpretation of ancient Sumerian references to the planet Jupiter. Even Sitchen didn't claim it would come back in 2012 (he said 2085). Nancy Lieder, who hears aliens in her head and originally said her "Planet X" would be here in 2003) took over Sitchen's imaginary planet and changed her doomsday date to 2012 when her original prediction failed. The Institute for Human Continuity isn’t a real organization. It is a website advertising the movie 2012. It is run by Sony Pictures and if you look around on the site, you will find that the “Press Releases” are all about characters in the movie. It is all fictional. That covers most of the absurd claims. The world will still be here after 2012, along with most of us.

Why do people take the Mayan calendar and 2012 seriously?

The only people who take it seriously are drugged-up new-age crazies and the uneducated who will believe anything. The whole thing is an invention by a bunch of frauds and crackpots trying to get you to buy worthless books and videos. None of it has any basis in real science. The people promoting this have no knowledge of science. They just like to pretend to be knowledgeable in order to impress the gullible. Don't be one of the gullible. There is no 'ancient prediction' by the Mayans or anyone else. These were all invented in the last 30 years. There is no 'mystery planet' about to pass by. Why don't the fraudsters tell us its current location in the sky, so we can all look at it? You decide. There will be no rare alignment, either planetary or galactic. When was the last alignment that caused us any problems anyway? There will be no pole shift. A magnetic pole shift is not imminent and probably tens of thousands of years away. A sudden rotational pole shift is a physical impossibility. The next solar maximum is expected in mid 2013, not 2012 and is expected to be less intense than the last maximum in 2001. Other predictions such as the photon belt and Terence McKenna's Timewave Zero are just too silly to bother with.

Are there any furry conventions in or around North Carolina?

According to the Wikifur calendar of upcoming events at http://en.wikifur.com/wiki/Template:Upcoming_events I don't see any conventions listed for North Carolina. The closest ones I see around you are in Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, or Florida. A similar distance drive may also be Ohio and Pennsylvania. Here's a map of conventions, too: http://en.wikifur.com/FurryConventionMap.html These lists are not likely all-inclusive, though. There may be small fur meets around your state that you could get in on. Check out these links: http://en.wikifur.com/wiki/CarolinaFurs http://carolinafurs.info/ http://mephitfurmeet.org/ (Mephit Furmeet, in Memphis, TN) Midwest FurFest starts tomorrow in Chicago. Come on up and join the fun!

Help me Im a teenager and worried about the world ending on december 21st?

Why trust NASA indeed? I mean, they're only a bunch of scientists with advanced degrees in things like Physics, Astronomy and other hard sciences. They're the ones that have launched satellites into orbit, put rovers on Mars, and used the planets themselves to fling probes out of our very solar system. Also, scientists and engineers, in general, make lousy liars. Their profession is about discovering the truth - not covering it up. So if things like Niibiru, the "invisible planet" were actually true, then all the probes and rovers we've sent to other planets would have crashed into it or been flung off course. After all, black holes are also "invisible" yet we know they exist due to things like gravity. Other theories about "Great alignments" or such have also been disproven since, unlike what the doomsday experts are claiming, these things happen all the time, yet the effect on the planet has been nil. Honestly for these things to be true, that means I could stand on a mountain in California, wave my arms, and cause you to fall over even though you're standing in New York. But you're right. It's better to listen to a bunch of people who are just trying to sell you books about the apocalypse, even though they were wrong about 1999/2000, not to mention numerous other dates throughout the 90s, 80s, 70s, and so on... The Mayan calendar stretches for centuries and seems to end abruptly on our December 21, 2012. What the so-called apocalypse experts won't tell you, however, is that the Mayan calendar does not use the same system as our does. People saying the Mayan calendar predicts the end of the world is like saying my Hello Kitty wall calendar predicts the end of the world is December 31 2012 because that's when it ends. Indeed, the Mayan calendar ends because it marks the end of a 10,000 year cycle. It's their New Year's Eve for their year 9999. If they were still around they'd be making a new calendar for the years 10000-19999. Or, more likely, they'd simply go to the local mall and buy the 2013 Hello Kitty wall calendar. If you look at history, you'll notice we've always dealt with natural disasters, wars, economic turmoil, etc. People back then would say these too were "Signs of the end!" yet the world continues. Sometimes things are slightly worse, sometimes they're slightly better. There is no coverup going on because there literally is nothing to cover up. Dec 21 is not the end of the world. In fact, the chances of the world ending within your lifetime is so slim that you have a better chance of winning the lottery and being struck by lightning on the same day.

Religious views aside What are you doing to prepare for 12/21/2012?

I figure that I could probably get in some great Christmas shopping because most people would not be in the malls as they would be preparing for the end of the world even if it isn't really coming.

When is Culture and History Week in Italy?

They are annual events. The 2012 and 2013 calendars haven't been published yet. When they are, the information will be on the Ministero per i Bene e Attivita' Culturali website. 2011 dates and events are here: http://www.beniculturali.it/mibac/export/MiBAC/sito-MiBAC/MenuPrincipale/EventiCulturali/GrandiEventi/index.html_59871533.html

Should my brother believe in the History's Channel documentary on 2012 and Nostradamus?

I have my own predictions for the end of 2012. This involves many books being sent for pulp, clips being removed from YouTube, websites vanishing without trace, videos being scrapped and people wanting their money back from those who claimed that something big and perhaps nasty would happen around 21 - 23 December. Of course the dissatisfied customers will not get refunds, the people running this hoax are the slimy sort who don't give refunds on shoddy goods and certainly not on the lies they have been peddling for a few years now. Another prediction is that those who have websites prophesying disaster in December 2012 will deny utterly in 2013 that they had such a site. When faced with archived copies of their site they will deny it was theirs. What are a few more lies when they have told so many already? A further prediction is that the same sort of garbage will be revived for some date a few years after 2012. I'm guessing some time between 2015 and 2025 for the next end of the world scam, most likely between 2018 and 2023. By that time there will me a new crop of 14 year olds to frighten and another crop of foolish adults to waste their money on books and videos or join some ghastly religious cult. Disaster in 2012 is delusion, lies, fraud for money and superstition. If you see this on the History Channel, you should realise that the History Channel does not care what lies and garbage it transmits, just so long as people watch it and the commericials with it.

If I start handing out calendars for 2013, do you think people will calm down about the world ending?

Haha that's good... I don't think many people would buy that, figuratively and literally

How many coincidences are there pointing at 2012?

Zero. Precession is a circle. It does not end in 2012AD. If you seek to know why the Mayan placed the end of their 13 baktun count on the December solstice in our year 2012, you must read about their mythology and folklore. Do not seek this info on the internet which has no controls over truth of content. A good book is Cosmogenesis by John Major Jenkins. You state that "We all know...", yet 99.99% of the population knows NOTHING of the Mayan culture nor the reasoning behind its calendar. This fact is all the hoaxers needed to start disinformation about it on the internet and to start cashing in with the t-shirts and books on how to survive. IF, as you state, other peoples of the world spoke of 2012, then why was nothing heard of this before Jenkins book came out in 1998??? The Sun regularly goes through a 22 year cycle. The truth is that this solar maximum will be the weakest in many decades. In order to understand the topic of your question, one needs to study the history and success of end-of-the-world hoaxes. 2012 is not the first and it will not be the last. There will always be those who make money from end-of-the-world hoaxes. This is because there will always be a percentage of those in our society who fall into the catagory of being low educated and gullible. The less one understands science, the more likely they are to view the world as being something mystical and magical. Research Patrick Geryl. He will not be selling his thousands of acreage of "pristine retirement property" -as he called it- in South Africa when 2013 arrives. He will not be giving any of his money back to those who bought his doomsday books. We will hear nothing more from him. Note how doomsday websites do not post the name of the author of the site. They do not want to be traced. End-of-the-world scams are take the money and run schemes. If you want it to stop, ask your Representatives to invest in education so your grandchildren don't have to go through this crap.

From me (hereinafter called the "Wishor") to you (hereinafter called the"Wishee"), please accept without obligation, express or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, politically correct, low stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions within the religious/secular persuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all, as well as a financially successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2013, but with due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures or sects. This greeting implies no promise by the Wishor to actually implement any of the wishes for the Wishee.

Why is the Dv green card lottery for this year called 2013? What does it mean?

The US government operates on a fiscal year based on the Federal budget. It runs from October 1 to September 30 the next calendar year. If you apply now, the earliest you could go is October 1, 2012. That's assuming you win, and have a very low number. Most of the DV winners will go sometime in 2013. The last visa will be issued no later than September 30, 2013, although it's possible that they will run out of available visas before then. Considering that these visas are valid for up to 6 months, it's quite possible that some of them will actually go in 2014.

When does school start for elementary age kids in Louisiana?

Not every elementary school in the entire state of Louisiana is going to have the same start date. Each school district can have a different date for the start of the school year. Most school districts now have web sites. go to the academic calendar. Start for the 2012/13 year should be up by now.

When is the best time to visit the south of France?

The best time to visit the South of France depends on what you plan to do. If you wish to swim on the sea, without crowds, the best moment is September. The water is warm enough to swim till the end of the month. If you like sailing boats, the best moment to go is during the last week of September, first week of October, when the regatta "Les voiles de Saint-Tropez" takes place. Even if you're not mad about sailing, this is an spectacular even that I never miss. http://www.ot-saint-tropez.com/discover/calendar-of-events/september-2012/128641-5161,les-voiles-de-saint-tropez-the-saint-tropez-sails.html If you like Harley Davidson, there's a meeting every year in May, I don't really like motorcycles but the atmosphere that reigns in Saint-Tropez during this event is quite funny. Just to discover the region, May and June are also perfect. Apart from the well known cities, don't miss Saint-Paul de Vence, Eze village & gardens, Gourdon, Grimaud, Gassin, Cotignac, Porquerolles island. Transport : Whenever it's possible, take the train or a boat. There are also buses.

What kind of journal should i keep for 2013?

I think this is kind of cool; I'm not a journal person myself, but it seems really sweet. Instead of a traditional "here's what happened today" you can shorten what you did, write it on an index card with the date and put it in box. You continue for each day of the year (a new card) and then reuse them the next year. It seems interesting to go back and read what you did that day years ago. http://www.designsponge.com/2010/12/diy-project-vintage-postcard-calendar-journal.html Hope this year brings you some good stories to write down =]

How long before a wedding do you reserve a hall?

It is not too early. There are many people who plan years in advance in order to secure the date they want and make sure that no-one else grabs that date. If you plan that far ahead, you should plan a few reminder phone calls to the venue to make sure they are continuing to hold the day. Call them March of 2011, then March of 2012 just to make sure you are still one the calendar. In fact, if once you have the date secured, you can start planning all the other vendors. Photographer, caterer, decorator, florist, cake, bartenders, limo, band, harp player, tent rentals, printer etc. You are giving yourself plenty of time to find the perfect dress, but don't get it altered until closer to the date, because your weight might change. Maybe get it altered about a month ahead of the date. Hope that helps.

How many years does it take before each calendar is used at least once?

There are 14 possible calendars. Each of the following has one different calendar, and each year can be put into one of the following 14 categories: (01) New Years Day is a Monday and year is not leap year (02) New Years Day is a Monday and year is a leap year (03) New Years Day is a Tuesday and year is not leap year (04) New Years Day is a Tuesday and year is a leap year (05) New Years Day is a Wednesday and year is not leap year (06) New Years Day is a Wednesday and year is a leap year (07) New Years Day is a Thursday and year is not leap year (08) New Years Day is a Thursday and year is a leap year (09) New Years Day is a Friday and year is not leap year (10) New Years Day is a Friday and year is a leap year (11) New Years Day is a Saturday and year is not leap year (12) New Years Day is a Saturday and year is a leap year (13) New Years Day is a Sunday and year is not leap year (14) New Years Day is a Sunday and year is a leap year I'll list out all the years and in brackets beside each year put the number corresponding to which of the above 14 years it is. We can stop listing years once all 14 numbers have been used. 2010 (09) 2011 (11) 2012 (14) 2013 (03) 2014 (05) 2015 (07) 2016 (10) 2017 (13) 2018 (01) 2019 (03) 2020 (06) 2021 (09) 2022 (11) 2023 (13) 2024 (02) 2025 (05) 2026 (07) 2027 (09) 2028 (12) 2029 (01) 2030 (03) 2031 (05) 2032 (08) 2033 (11) 2034 (13) 2035 (01) 2036 (04). Starting from 2010, it will take until 2036 (including both 2010 and 2036, that's 27 years) until all 14 calendars are used at least once.

When will a calendar from 2002 be usable again?

2013 There are 14 possible calendars (the year has to begin on one of seven days, and there are two types -- leap year and non-leap-year). In the example below, 2002 is calendar #2. The next calendar #2 is 2013.

What are some good topics teen girls should learn?

For many of these girls, it won't be long before they want to apply for their first job. How about doing a lesson on applying for jobs, interviewing, writing Thank You notes/emails, giving proper notice when planning to quit, etc. A lot of teens think that living alone at 18 will be easy. Try doing a lesson on budgeting so they get a sense of how much money they will need to pay rent, Renter's Insurance, Car Insurance, gas, groceries, utilities, etc. for one month. If these are at risk kids, you could do a lesson on cost of rasing a baby. You could have them find prices of carseats, formula, diapers, cribs, highchairs, baby food, bottles, sippy cups, clothes, toys, saftey items, etc.

Where would I go to have a calander made for 2013 with photos of my grandparents on each page?

When the Mayan calendar ends, do we go back to the beginning or do we go to 2013?

No. Our calendar is NOT the Mayan calendar, it is the Gregorian calendar. Assuming the world doesn't end (the smart money is here) the years go on from 2012, 2013, 2014, etc. This year, 2010, is from our Calendar not from anyone else's. You see, the way it works is that the Mayan calendar's end has been figured out to correspond to 2012 on our calendar. I seriously doubt that the Mayans used the same number system we do. What all the concern is about is that some people like to think that means the end of the world or something like that. Our calendar has nothing to do the Mayan calendar. 2013 will follow 2012 unless WE change OUR calendar - and that would take a real reason. World War II wasn't enough and 50 MILLION people died! That 2012 corresponds to some old calendar's end isn't anything like enough reason.

How often does the calendar year repeat itself?

There is a specific pattern on how a calendar repeats itself. If the calendar is not a leap year, the calendar will generally repeat itself 11 years later. If the calendar came immediately after a leap year, it will repeat itself only 6 years later. This is because the number of days in a non-leap calendar year is a multiple of the number of days in a week, with a remainder of 1. This means that every non-leap year must start and end with the same day of the week. This means that with every year that goes by, the same date (i.e.: March 10th) will fall on the next day of the week one year later. For example, March 10th 2006 fell on a Friday; therefore March 10th 2007 fell on a Saturday. With leap years, there is an extra day to contend with, so if there is a leap day in the way, then that same date the following year will fall two days of the week later. Therefore, if March 10th 2007 fell on a Saturday, then March 10th 2008 falls two days later, on a Monday, since we had to cross a February 29th, a leap day. Also, we all know that leap years come every four years, in years that are a multiple of four. If we were to analyze this pattern, you would discover that every four years, the day of the week goes ahead five days, because of the 1+1+1+2 rule. In other words, the day of the week comes two days of the week before it did four years earlier. In 2008, February 29th fell on a Friday, so, in 2012, it will fall on a Wednesday. If you pick a year that comes immediately after a leap year, that calendar can repeat itself only six years later, since there is only one leap year between these two years, and it also falls smack-dab in the middle between the two repeating years. Remember that every date falls one day of the week after it did the year before. Therefore, with only one leap year, where the day of the week falls two days later, and five non-leap years, a year that falls immediately after a leap year repeats itself six years later, since 5 + 2 equals 7, the number of days in a week. With the other two non-leap years, you need to wait 11 years before that calendar can be used again, because six years later, you will have crossed two leap days instead of one, so therefore, that date will fall one day of the week after it did six years ago. March 10th 2007 fell on a Saturday, so because you cross two February 29th's, one in 2008 and one in 2012, March 10th in 2013 would have to fall on a Sunday. You would need to, in this case, add another five years before 2007's calendar can be used again. Considering that dates fall five days of the week after they did four years earlier, in this case, 2018's calendar dates will fall six days after they will in 2013. This completes the 11 year cycle, since March 10th in 2013 fell on a Sunday, and six years earlier, in 2007, it fell on a Saturday, so March 10th 2018 will fall on a Saturday. To answer your second question of when a 1962 calendar could have been used again, the answer would be 1973, since it comes 11 years after 1962. You cannot reuse it in 1968, because you are crossing two leap days, one in 1964 and one in 1968, so most of 1968's dates (March to December) fall one day of the week after they did in 1962. You need another five years after 1968 before 1962's calendar can be reused, since every year's dates fall on the day of the week after they did in the preceding year, and there is only one more leap year after 1968 before 1973. Therefore, 1973's dates fall six days of the week after they did in 1968, after February 29th. In other words, 1973's dates fall one day of the week before they did in 1968, completing the 11 year cycle. 1973's dates fall on the same days of the week as in 1962. You cannot reuse a calendar for a non-leap year that falls after a leap year 11 years later, because, most obviously, you're running into a leap year, so 1973's calendar would not match exactly with 1984, since 1984 was a leap year. With that in mind, some of the dates in 1984 must be different then they were in 1973. You can reuse a 1973 calendar in 1979, since only one leap year occurred between these two years, and 1973 came right after a leap year. If you add another five years to 1979, you are crossing two leap days, one in 1980 and one in 1984. Therefore, you have three non-leap years, where the day of the week progresses one day, and two leap years, where the day of the week progresses two days. In that case, you get 3 + 2 + 2 to get 7 days. This still poses a problem, because 1984 is already a leap year, so only the months of March to December match exactly with 1979 and 1973. January and February do not. They fall one day of the week before they did in the other two years. Leap years are a little bit different. A leap year calendar can only be used once every 28 years. This is because a leap year only occurs once every four years and there are seven days in a week. It only makes sense mathematically that they repeat every 28 years because 4 multiplied b

Health care spending account addition at the end of the calendar year?

You probably can't add an account for 2012, they can typically only be initiated during the open enrollment period, which for the 2012 year was probably late last year. Had you opened it during the open enrollment period for 2012, then you probably could have added the baby if he/she was born in 2012 & could use the account for expenses incurred in 2012. Good move adding the account for next year, those tiny bundles of joy can get expensive! Maybe you'll luck out & have a 2013 baby. Either way, best of luck to you & the Mrs.

2.Where would I go to have a calander made for 2013 with photos of my grandparents on each page?

If you have a program such as Print Shop, you can do it on your own at home. If you do not have such a progrma and do not want to purchase one (for as little as $20), then you can get it done quickly and easily at any Walgreens, Wal Mart, CVS, etc. That is not very expensive either. It sounds like a lovely gift! You might even use more than one picture for each page- for instance, a picture of your grandparents the day they were married on the month of their anniversary, a picture of your grandfather with each of your aunts and uncles on the months their birthdays are in. You can also throw in random pictures. Maybe a big collage for December. You will see how easy it is when you go to get it done. In fact, visit one of the stores and you can browse through the products and see what is available (on the little kiosks, just choose photo calendars and then you can see the frames available, the borders available, etc.). You might want to visit all of the stores to decide which has what you like the most. No charge unless you buy anything!

What are all the types of calendars the Mayans made ?

Well, some folks assert that our Mayans predicted the end of the world in 2012 simply because we have remnants of their calendars that end in 2012. I have a desk blotter calendar that ends on December 31, 2012, ergo that's when the world will end, I guess. The calendar in my kitchen goes all the way to January 2013: my calendars are in conflict. Google "Mayan Calendar" for a veritable plethora of Mayan Calendar resources provided by erstwhile entrepreneurs who earnestly desire to inform you and sell you stuff. They claim to know the secrets of Mayan culture, which they will bestow on you for nominal charges.

Why didnt the mayans make a 2013 calander?

There's no physical calendar, just the rules for making it. The Mayan Long Count calendar clicks over from 12.19.19.17.19 to 13.0.0.0.0 on 21st December 2012. That's all there is to it. It's the same as our calendar changing from 1999 to 2000. The Maya themselves never predicted the end of the world would happen at that time. All the doomsday predictions attached to this date are, without exception, unscientific nonsense, perpetrated by frauds and hoaxers.

Excel formula based on certain days of the week in a calendar year?

Hi JM, Here is an event handler that will query you for the 'year', then return a month by month listing of all dates that are Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Each double click will clear the 'calendar' and requery for a new year. Holidays landing on a Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday will be highlighted light yellow in the 'calendar'.
