Alternative Timekeeping Systems

Hello fellow horologists

My alternative calendar is similar to Asimov's "World Season Calendar" in that it divides the year 4 ways, by solstices and equinoxes, and has static calendars (months always begin on the same day, special date/s are added without a day of the week)

Like the Soviet system, it uses 6 day workweeks; this allows for a natural 4 day weekdays + 2 day weekend division of labor.

1 day is a holiday, followed by 3 months of 5 weeks of 6 days each, followed by another holiday. (1+(3*5*6)*4) = 364; the year is began with a "year day" between spring and summer, while leap years also see a "leap day" added between fall and winter.

June 19 - Year Day
June 20 - Summer Day
June 21 - Summer 1
September 18 - Summer 90
September 19 - Fall Day
September 20 - Fall 1
December 18 - Fall 90
December 19 - Winter Day
December 20 - Winter 1
March 19 - Winter 90
March 20 - Spring Day
March 21 - Spring 1
June 18 - Spring 90

Yeah, bingo,
although theoretically, the easiest way to have a society replace their calendar/clock is to do it via automated systems (smart watch, smart phone, desktop) imo. One of the obstacles the French and Soviets faced was the difficulty they faced in dealing with foreign countries (this was a bit before the UNIX epoch time system as well, which is our de facto global timekeeping system)
