Unique Decembers? 823 Years?

Did Pope Gregory, 13th,
really screw up back in 1582?

Same December as 2007 again 5 years later.

Holy goosebumps, Batman,
how in great gobs of goose grease
do they get 823 years?
Sheesh! 6 years from now the same December.

If a month has 31 days ... and there are 7.

Remember that Mother Goose so famously taught us in this little ditty ...
Thirty days hath September,
April, June, and November;
February has twenty-eight alone,
All the rest have thirty-one;
Excepting leap year, that's the time,
When February's days are twenty-nine.

When a 31 day month with the 1st day beginning Friday or Saturday, there will be 3 consecutive days of 5. Happens several times a year.

Does the Mayan end time calendar really have people so freaked out just because of 21 December 2012? Well, I suppose they are just like the the lemming  suicide myth in Disney's White Wilderness documentary.

C'est la vie.
