TODAY IS CALENDAR ADJUSTMENT DAY
Calendar Adjustment Day may seem like it is a date for you to simply make a few adjustments to your calendar. While this is certainly one of the ways that you can honor this date, Calendar Adjustment Day is a lot more than this. It marks one of the most significant dates in our history; a date that led to the current calendar system and New Year’s Day being celebrated at the start of January.
