28 Day Month

I need your help in starting a movement. The movement is the thirteen month year. Like the metric system, it makes total sense, but like the metric system, will not likely be adopted in America.

Imagine every month with twenty days in which Sundays always fall on the 1st, 8th, 15th, and 22nd. And every day of the week would likewise fall on the same numbers each month. So, when someone says the 2nd Tuesday of such and such month, you’d know the date, which in this example would be the 10th.

The clever among you have already done the math. 28 x 13 = 364. The extra day would be called New Year’s Day and would be added to the beginning of the year, in front of January.

I didn’t forget Leap Year, which is the key to adoption of this brilliant idea. Once every four years there’d be an extra day and it would be sold to the highest bidder. It could be called Microsoft Day, Google Day, Trump Day, whoever pays the most for the day would get to name the day. The tax and spend group will go for it if the money paid for the extra day goes to the government. The capitalist will go for it as they love to attach their names to highly visible objects. Heck this might go international. Say the Chinese wanted to buy the Leap Year day; they’d prorate their payment to countries into which they export. It’s a win/win for everyone.

Yes, there are other issues to be considered, I understand. But all of that can be figured out as we go. It’s probably best to pass this so we can then figure out how best to implement. I think we can all agree it’s a great idea.
