The (Universal) Georgian Calendar, named after the British King George, also known as the Pancronometer, was invented around 1745 by reverend Hugh Jones under the pen name Hirossa Ap-Iccim. It is credited as being one of the first 13-by-4 calendar reform proposals.

The start of the year count was shifted by four years earlier, because that was considered to be the error Dionysius Exiguus made when establishing te Anno Domini era. The year itself shall begin with the Northern winter solstice. Every fourth year has a leap day Olympiad / Thanksgiving (national holiday) at the end, but in ever 132nd year it would be skipped. The leap day follows Christmas day and both do not have a day of the week assigned to them, making the calendar perennial.

  1. St. Peter
  2. St. Andrew
  3. St. James
  4. St. John
  5. St. Philip
  6. St. Bartholomew
  7. St. Thomas
  8. St. Matthew
  9. St. James the Less
  10. St. Jude
  11. St. Simon

Alternatively, if traditional month names were kept, the new one would be called Georgy.
