The current calendar system structure was adapted centuries ago. A lot has changed since then, the world is round, we have machines that do our work for us, we have a massive interconnected network that allows up to rapidly send vital information across the globe, and Trump is President of the United States (ok, so we can’t have it all).

The current calendar system is inconsistent with the modern world, it lacks order. Some months are 28 days, some 31, some 30. How much time has been wasted on trying to figure how many days are in the current month?

The solution: Typical months are either 30 or 31 days, with the first 5 months being 31-day months (first 6 on leap year). Pros: A logical distribution of days. Cons: None

Upon further research,  two similar proposed changes to the current calendar system were discovered: World Calendar and the Hanke-Henry Permanent Calendar

The World Calendar:

The World Calendar system divides each quarter year equally into 91 days with the 31-day month the first month in the quarter. There is also a 31-day month at the end of the year called “Worldsday”, a proposed international holiday. Pros: It is organized, neat, and logical. Cons: None

The Hanke-Henry Permanent Calendar:

The Hanke-Henry calendar divides the year so that each numbered day of the month is permanent associated with a particular day of the week. Pros: Alleviates confusion when trying to figure out the which day of the week a certain date is. Cons: It has to be readjusted every 5-6 years. Does not precisely aligned with solar calendar.
