Short short with English summary$B!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(B
I feel February is short. This year is the Olympic Game$B!G(Bs year. It means this year is a leap year therefore this February had 29 days not 28. Usually February has 28 days, 3 days less than normal months of 31 days, 10% less than usual months. The monthly expenses such as the house rents are naturally not reduced. Unfair, isn$B!G(Bt it? Comparing to the bank rate on our deposit, this 10% seems to me huge.
Actually our calendar is very complicated and irregular. Some months have 31 days and some months 30. February has 28 days but in a leap year 29. Furthermore western countries use peculiar naming systems for the months. Names of Gods and emperors are mixed with numbers. And these numbers do not correspond to the position of the month. The number 9th, 10th$B!D(B12th of the month are called number 7th, 8th$B!D(B.10th. Many of us are forced to use this peculiar system. But there are unexpectedly numbers of the nations that do not adopt this solar calendar, Gregorian calendar.
India has the national calendar, Saka calendar. Muslims have two systems; Hijra and Persian year, and Jewish has Hebrew calendar. Chinese people celebrate traditional festivals after their Xia calendar.
In a word, everywhere in the world people use a sort of double calendar system; their own calendar fitting for their lifestyles and traditions, and the solar calendar as inter national standard. Just unfortunately today$B!G(Bs solar calendar is organized irrationally and meaninglessly irregularly.
Why not try to have a new radical rational calendar system. One month shall be constantly 30 days. One year shall consist of 12 month and 5 days / 6 days. These 5/6 days shall be placed at end of the year as extra holidays. And, one week shall be 6 days so 5 weeks in a month, two working days and a free day.
Perhaps these end of the year 5/6 days might be named the Bonus days. Then many people who do not get the bonus could feel not too much segregated from the bonused neighbors.
