Counting Time

New year. Must take advantage of the opportunity...

What if we had longer years (1000 days. 2000 days.)? What if we had shorter years (100 days. 50 days.)? How would that impact our lives (annual events, holidays, birthdays...)?

  1. If the years were longer, I bet birthdays would be a much bigger milestones. Each one would be a major stage in life, toddler hood, elementary age, middle school age, etc. etc. If they were shorter, I think they'd be a lot less important, maybe not celebrated at all. It's a lot less special when another revolution is only fifty days away.

    This was a cool one :)

  2. You know what? I've actually thought about this. In one story world, I was tampering with the calendar and contemplating how that would affect society overall. I didn't like it. Not one bit. Nowhere near as interesting. =)

  3. There would still be missed days and opportunities. Sadly, we tend to procrastinate, but there would be more days to wander about and make mistakes, and succeed eventually.....so I'm all for it!

    1. That's true. But that would be true for any calendar, wouldn't it?
