The Discordian Calendar

Like most other religious traditions, Discordianism got all excited and invented its own calendar. The kinda stupid part is that the religion based on Chaos went out and invented one of the more reasonable systems out there.

Where the Gregorian calendar has a melange of months of all sorts of weird durations, the Discordian (or POEE, named after the cabal that created it) calendar divvies the year up into 5 months (or "seasons") of 73 days (or "days") each.

From the Principia Discordia:
