What is a calendar? A calendar is the absolute dead center of any civilization. Everything in that civilization revolves around its calendar. Due dates, bill dates, when you're supposed to be at work, how old you are. All of these things are relative to the calendar. Including the evaluation of your performance. How many widgets can you produce by Wednesday? That's how valuable you are. It's all related to the calendar.
