    So their birthday means your birthday right? Like you are the boss man and we must always celebrate New year on your birthday or else you are going to get stropy and tell people they must do what you say because that is the option.

    I was only saying so in any case if a calendar was made in 1582 it is because it made scents because of all the harvests and moon phases because man was wide awake then and had come out of the dark ages. So why not keep it the same because if we say make a metric calendar the earth isnt going to suddenly go round the sun in 10 months is it.

    If the idea is to have the calendar perfectly attuned to the individual's timeline, then it makes the most sense for them to celebrate the New Year at the exact millisecond of the exact day of the moment they were born each year. For example, if someone was born on August 27th of 1958 at 3:42:59:227, then it is this moment when their calendar, as well as the clock, starts. In other words, on August 27th at 3:42:59:227 of 2022, their calendar should show 01/01/64, and their clock should show 0:00:00:000.

    The obvious inconvenience of having such a system is easily mitigated by just accepting the common calendar and celebrating the New Year at the same moment (up to the time zone correction) as everybody else. ;)
  • On their birthday if I am telling the truth. The calendar year is not really a new year it is the same year with a new number, yet, still the best form of year everyone can celebrate as a moment shared by birth and birthday as a united state, large groups of people.

    Personally, I think we should go back to New Years happening on the Spring Equinox. I always found it strange that we start the new year in the middle of a season, but that's just me. ;)
