After serious efforts to align the religious festivities that I celebrate into a unified calendar, I have decided to…
Actually, I haven’t decided on anything yet. I’ve been working on this for months, and yet, here I am, still confused.
I need your help, people. For the longest time, I’ve been using the old Attic calendar out of convenience, but I’ll be really honest with you: most of the month names don’t resound with me; not with the collective cultus of my household and not with our locale. [Insert very long argument about pagan religions being about the “here” and the “now”.]
I’ve been wanting to do something similar to what Sannion and Helio have done, so I decided to collect all the festivals that have meant something to me. They’re all neatly placed in a spreadsheet, but I honestly don’t know what to do with them.
Should I retain a lunar calendar (for tradition’s sake) and just reinvent the names? Should I go full Gregorian for practicality? Or a dual one? What about the Egyptian feast-days?
Of course, ultimately, our household will have to decide on it, but hey, maybe you have better ideas.
