It turns out that calendars are fairly complicated instruments when used to track the days of our lives. For the most part, it’s pretty straight forward. All that is required of us is to purchase a pre-made calendar, write down our favorite events throughout the year and check it once in a while to make sure we are on course. But, for the folks who put those calendars together and watch over the relationship of our earth years in relation to our calendar years – well, they have their job cut out for them.
Turns out that even though there are 365 calendar days in a year, there are really only 364 and some odd actual hours in a year. In order to synchronize the way we represent the passing of time with the way time actually passes we need to add an extra day every 4 years. If this didn’t happen, the seasons would slowly (and I mean slowly) shift so that at some point the months that we typically associate with summer would be winter. Mass hysteria, dogs, and cats, living together.
To make matters even more confusing, what I’ve described above relates to the Gregorian calendar. This is the calendar that we use here in the United States as well as other parts of the world. Commonly referred to as a solar calendar. But, there are other calendars out there that have different ways of dealing with “real time”. There are Julian, Hebrew, Hindu, Chinese and a Solar Hijri calendar all of which have their own special ways to account for times passage and how to rectify discrepancies.
