Thomas Says Society addresses the gaps of Gregorian calendar by promoting “The Green World Calendar”


(June 25, 2014) - Thomas Says Society has always strived towards changing the society for good. One such step is the promotion of The Green World Calendar. With this initiative, the society aims at clearing out the confusions and drawbacks that the traditional Gregorian calendar has. The society is working day in and day out to reduce the gaps of the Black Gregorian calendar and encouraging more and more people to resort to the Green World Calendar.

The World Calendar had the prime aim of providing a solution to the drawbacks of the Gregorian calendar. It scheduled and planned all what the Gregorian calendar did not. The World Calendar was promoted by The World Calendar Association which began in 1930.

The World calendar is a 12-months perennial calendar. It does not change and it also has equal quarters. This is based on the argument that if the left out 1 day of the 365/7=52 weeks plus 1 day and the leap day is taken off each year, and then people will have a perennial calendar. The remaining 1 day may be taken off as a holiday or resting period before the new calendar begins. Such days may be termed as “intercalary days” are not weekdays.

The biggest issue that the World Calendar addressed was making the annual Gregorian calendar perennial. The world calendar is a set standard calendar which does not change every year. Thus no new formation, thinking, printing, distribution etc of the new calendars is required each year. Also, the standard calendar will also wash off the whole 14 calendar story which the Gregorian calendar is about.

The year in the World calendar start with the same day each year. Thus, January 1st will always be say a Friday always and days can also be remembered along with the dates. This will also lead to us having actually a birth-day rather than a birth-date. Thus, the actual birthday can now be remembered for instance as Friday, 4th April 1990.

With the advent of The Green World calendar, the year was divided into equal quarters of 91 days each. This is a major advantage over the Gregorian calendar which has unequal distribution of days among the quarters in a year.

The month-length variations are more regular in the World Calendar. Most of the months have 30 days. The first month of each quarter (January, April, July, October) have 31 days. This has cleared out the confusion of which months have 31 days and which have 30 as per the Gregorian calendar. All the months in the World Calendar have the same 26 number of days excluding Sundays.


The Green World Calendar is promoted by The World Calendar Association. Thomas Says Society has taken initiatives in order to make The World Calendar gain a wider popularity and acceptability.
