RE: [spoon-discuss] Thoughts toward a universal Nomic calendar

We need Holidays as well, outside of the main nweek calendar. They should
be Full of Stars, of course.

For instance, a fifth of a year is 73 days. That's five of these nweeks
(which should now be called nfortnights?) plus three days left over for
Holidays, when we can party and drink more than usual.
