The idea of the Albertan calendar was created by Albert Jacher in 2001. It has nothing to do with the Canadian province of Alberta.
1 Albertan year is the period of time for Earth to complete its revolution on its orbit around the Sun. The Albertan year begins with the beginning of the astronomical spring in the northern hemisphere of Earth.
The Albertan year is divided into 4 major seasons related to the movement of the Earth around the Sun. The 4 seasons are devided for convenience into 2 shorter periods of about 44-45 days. There are holidays throughout the whole year. Every 'semiseason' period begins with a holiday - calenda. There are periods of 6 days, similar to weeks regularly consisting of one holiday and next 5 working days.
Albert Jacher started counting the years in Albertan calendar from the beginning of the Albertan era, which is assumed as the year of the publishing the “Theory of Wisdom” (in the spring of 2000 according to the Gregorian calendar).
Every 4 years, there are leap years. Then 1 day is added to the end of the Albertan calendar.
The Albertan calendar is accepted as the official and religious calendar for the Natural Universal Wisdom Religion.
There are some advantages of the Albertan Calendar:
- The Albertan calendar is stable, throughout many years (hundreds, thousands). It can even get carved in wood, metal or stone or can be stably included in an electronic device (computer, watch).
Seasons, days, holidays are constant in Albertan calendar - known many years ahead.
- Calendar seasons, periods are corelated with natural, astronomical seasons and natural phenomena on Earth.
- It is not based on what Jacher considers stupid Jewish/Catholic mythology, that the Jewish god Yahu created the world in 5 days, on the 6th day he created 2 humans, and that he had to rest on the 7th day. Thus there are 7 days of a week in Jewish/Catholic calendars.
- It is not based on the Gregorian calendar/Catholic where the first day of the Catholic year is just randomly chosen day of a year, with any association to anything.
