Perpetual Calendar View any month, any year, in the Gregorian calendar. 1753 was the first full year in which the U.S. (then a British colony) began using the Gregorians. Create calendar for any year by typing in the year, using four digits. You can also choose a calendar by country. The calendar you choose will show holiday and observance dates relevant to the country you selected.
Perpetual calendars divide evenly into two sets of seven calendars: seven for each common year (the year that does not have a February 29) with each of the seven starting on a different day of the week. Some perpetual calendars' tables slide against each other so that aligning two scales with one another reveals the specific month calendar via a pointer or window mechanism. Such a perpetual calendar fails to indicate the dates of moveable feasts such as Easter, which are calculated based on a combination of events in the Tropical year and lunar cycles. Perpetual calendars use algorithms to compute the day of the week for any given year, month, and day.
In watchmaking, "perpetual calendar" describes a calendar mechanism that correctly displays the date on the watch 'perpetually', taking into account the different lengths of the months as well as leap years. The World Calendar, the International Fixed Calendar and the Pax Calendar are all perpetual calendars because their dates are fixed on same weekdays every year. A table-based perpetual calendar provides a simple lookup mechanism to find offset for the day of the week for the first day of each month. In a leap year January and February must either be treated as a separate year or have extra entries in the month table. For example, if there were no leap years, the user would have to look up the date from 15 October 1582 onwards but only for Gregorian dates.
