The Aristean Calendar has a constant day-date relationship. One can even memorize it and which will be valid year after year. Examples: January 1 will always be Monday; December 25, always Tuesday. The last Monday of January will always fall on January 29; Melbourne Cup Day (first Tuesday of November) will always be on November 6.


Basically, the Aristean is very similar to the Gregorian. Only a few slight modifications are made. This makes it simpler, more uniform and easier to remember than the Gregorian. The changeover from the Gregorian to the Aristean will not be drastic.


The divisions of months, quarters and half-years in the Aristean are more uniform and have lesser differences than in the Gregorian. It has only either 30 or 31 days in a month, 91 or 92 days in a quarter, and 182 or 183 days in a half-year. In the economic sphere, this is favorable and expedient.


To the superstitious, the 13th will NEVER fall on a Friday.


Activities and special occasions regularly held every year would become easier to schedule and remember. Examples: school terms and holidays, festivals, public holidays, daylight saving dates, birthdays, anniversaries, taxation dates, Wimbledon and the US Open in tennis.


Unsold diaries and calendars will not be discarded anymore. They can be sold anytime of the year. Wastage and losses are eliminated.


Calendars will not have to be printed every year. That means saving many trees that would have to be cut down to produce paper to print the calendars.


Dates within the week number are fixed. Examples: week 1 is from January 1-7, week 28 is from July 8-14, and week 52 is from December 24-31 every year. This makes statistical comparison more uniform.


Holidays can easily be planned well in advance.


Christmas Day is celebrated on May 23 as revealed by the Holy Spirit. This settles the controversy on when to celebrate the birth of Jesus.


The movable feast of Easter in the Gregorian is fixed to August 20 in the Aristean. This is appropriately called Resurrection Day. The day when Jesus was crucified and died known as Good Friday is observed on August 17 in the Aristean. It is called Crucifixion Day.


Sabbath day is observed by Christians on Sunday. The Holy Spirit confirmed this.


There are several fixed long weekends. These are from Thursday, May 22 to Sunday, May 25 (Christmas Season, 4 days); Saturday, June 29 to Leap Year Day, June 31 (during leap years, 3 days); Saturday, August 17 (Crucifixion Day) to Tuesday, August 20 (Resurrection Day) (Lenten Season, 4 days); and Saturday, December 29 to Monday, January 1 (World Peace Day-New Year's Day, 4 days).


Most important of all, the Aristean is God's calendar. This is obviously revealed in the names of the proponent, his mother and his grandmother. (Details are in "Signs Behind God's Calendar".)
