The Positivist Calendar observes the 7-day week while restricting the month to exactly 4 weeks. It thereby accommodates 13 months a year, plus an annual festival commemorating the dead, and a leap-year festival dedicated to women – all this, and never a Friday the 13th.

Today's date on the Positivist Calendar is
   
common yr. leap yr.  
The selected Gregorian date is invalid.

Introduced by Auguste Comte in 1849, the Positivst Era was deemed to have begun with the Gregorian year 1789 (=year 1). Each day in the Positivist year is sacred to the memory of saints and heroes in the religion of Humanity. Minor saints (in italics) substitute in leap years. Sunday's saints (in capitals) are permanent, and the most venerable.
