The Jews have High Holidays or High Days which are held annually or monthly.  All or some days of these are Sabbath days and work maybe proscribed or banned.   These feasts are:

Feast

Jewish Name

Frequency

No. of Days

Sabbath Days

Feast of Unleavened Bread

Pesach

Annually

7

1st and 7th

Festival of Tabernacles

Sukkoth

Annually

1st and 7th

Harvest Festival or Pentecost

Shavuoth

Annually

1st and 50th

New Year’s Day

The day

Day of Atonement

Yom Kippur

New Moon Festival

Rosh Hodesh

Monthly

1st day of month

If the Jews could have annual or monthly feasts wherein all or some days of the feast are designated as Sabbath days, how much more could Christians designate December 31 every year and June 31 every leap year in the Aristean calendar as Sabbath days?  December 31 is called Grand Sabbath, and June 31, Glorious Sabbath.  These solve the problem of the extra 365th day in common year and the 366th day in leap year by designating them as Sabbath days.  God will be pleased the extra days are held as Sabbath days in His honor.
